As the Colombian government has tried to restart its aerial fumigation program with a herbicide called glyphosate, the Center for Reproductive Rights has published a report showing that the herbicide used in the program had negative effects on people’s reproductive health and making public policy recommendations to maintain that government program stopped. The Center supports this document on a study made by Universidad del Valle, a university based in Cali, Colombia.
This report was presented to the Colombian Truth Commission, which was created after the signing of the peace agreement between the FARC-EP and the Colombian State in 2016. This organization was established to investigate human rights violations from Colombia’s decades-long armed conflict.
