A total of 129 participants (67 women) attended the Final Regional Forum of the Swedish-supported Programme “ Towards a Non-toxic South-east Asia” held from 27-29 November 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand. The forum was jointly organized by programme partners (i.e., Swedish Chemicals Agency, The Field Alliance/Thai Education Foundation, Pesticide Action Network-Asia Pacific and the FAO Asia Regional IPM/Pesticide Risk Reduction Programme).  Participants comprised of representatives from national governments, civil society organization (CSO) partners and other stakeholders came together to summarize the accomplishments and lessons learned from more than 10 years collaboration,  highlight remaining challenges for the region and discuss ideas, priorities and strategies for continued work to strengthen chemicals management and reduce health and environmental risks from pesticides, industrial and consumer chemicals beyond the current phase of the regional programme that will come to a completion in January 2019.
