The book Occupational Safety and Health Challenges in Southern Agriculture by Christoph Scherrer, ICDD and Katja Radon, CIHLMU (2019) was recently reviewed by Florian Doerr, Associate Professional Officer at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

In Occupational Safety and Health Challenges in Southern Agriculture, editors Christoph Scherrer and Katja Radon aim to raise awareness about OSH challenges in agriculture with a specific focus on the Global South, where the situation is especially severe. Contributions cover countries like Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Ghana, India, Nicaragua and Pakistan. The scope of chapters varies from a national to a regional level, and focuses on major tropical crops like bananas, palm oil, sugar, melons, tea and mangoes. The target audience ranges from scholars to governments, labour movements and employers interested in decent work. The authors contribute from different disciplinary backgrounds, including agricultural sciences, economics, epidemiology, political economy and sociology. (Abstract Book review by Florian Doerr).
