Fall Armyworm (FAW) is an invasive and damaging pest endemic to the Americas that is spreading across Africa and Asia, particularly targeting maize, a vital staple crop. FAW will have long-term effects on crop yields, food supplies, livelihoods, trade, and threaten the resilience of chronically vulnerable populations.
Attendees of this webinar will have an opportunity to get an up-close look at each resource, understand the unique information contained within, and to ask questions of the experts who developed them. The webinar will be useful for both technical and non-technical individuals who want to understand how to influence farmer pest management behavior. The event will synthesize lessons learned and best practices organized around three thematic areas:
- Identifying and Validating Technologies
- Policy and Enabling Environment
- Knowledge Transfer and Communications
