EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) launched an initiative to achieve greater adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in schools as part of its commitment to protecting children’s health.  The Agency committed to stepping up its work with partners both inside and outside of the Agency, including other EPA Offices, EPA's ten Regions, other federal agencies, states, local governmental entities, tribes, universities, industry, and non-governmental organizations dedicated to IPM adoption. This session includes EPA perspectives on IPM in schools along with USDA’s IPM Center’s engagement on the initiative.
