Because everyone eats food, and because in the modern world foodstuffs are distributed across huge areas, any issue relating to agriculture ultimately affects a large and scattered range of consumers. The complexity of agricultural land use and food production systems also means that many different organisations have commercial or regulatory interests in farming and its possible health effects. All these need to be considered as potential participants in the assessment.

Types of stakeholders
Type/role Examples Interest/role
Farmers and their agents Land owners, farm workers, unions, farmers’ associations Victims of exposure; risk management and reduction; potential victims/beneficiaries of risk response (e.g. loss of income)
Agricultural suppliers and services Seed suppliers, pesticide manufacturers, fertiliser manufacturers, transport companies Risk management and reduction; potential victims/beneficiaries of risk response
Food distributors and processors Food wholesalers and retailers, transport companies Potential victims/beneficiaries of risk response
National/regional health protection agencies Public health institutions, food standards agencies, occupational health and safety agencies, local/regional health boards and environmental health departments Risk management and regulation; risk communication
National/regional environmental protection agencies Ministries of environment, environmental regulatory agencies, local authorities Risk management and regulation
European and international agencies European Commission (Directorates for Agriculture, Environment, Health); WHO, FAO Risk management and regulation; risk communication
NGOs Pesticide action groups, organic farming groups, animal welfare groups Risk communication; representatives of victims of exposure; lobbyists for action
Others 1) Rural residents; 2) National and local media ; 3) Scientists (epidemiologists, toxicologists, environmental scientists) 1) Victims of exposure; 2) risk communication; 3) risk analysis, risk communication, potential beneficiaries of risk
