Project
The project aims to develop food production systems that promote SI in representative farming systems of different agro-climatic areas of East and West Africa.
Project
The overall goal of the proposed East Africa Vegetable Crop IPM Innovation Lab (EAVCIPM-IL) is to build the capacity of the host country institutions to implement effective IPM research and locally adapted, gender-appropriate, technology transfer programs that lead to reduced losses attributed to pests, reduced use of synthetic pesticides, improved productivity and enhanced incomes for growers in the region, and to evaluate program impacts on pesticide use, environmental benefits, farm productivity, and incomes, and to use this information to inform national and regional policy.
