    This document presents proceedings and outcomes of the joint FAOSFE–ASARECA Regional Strategy Workshop on Fall Armyworm (FAW) for Eastern and Central Africa (ECA), held in Entebbe, Uganda from 18-20 September 2017. The objectives of the workshop were to: (i) create awareness of FAW; (ii) discuss effective and rational management of FAW; (iii) strengthen linkages and the exchange of information among the relevant stakeholders; and (iv) develop an action research strategy/ plan on FAW for resource mobilization. Thematic areas of the multi-stakeholder workshop included: (i) the status of FAW in ECA and ongoing response activities; (ii) identification and monitoring of FAW in ECA; (iii) appraisal of damage caused by the FAW; (iv) review of FAW management measures; and (v) review and strengthening of strategic partnerships and coordination for the control of FAW. This document describes five strategic intervention areas for sustainable management of FAW in Eastern Africa: (i) development of a FAW monitoring and forecasting system for early detection and action; (ii) appraisal of the options to manage FAW; (iii) exploration of mechanisms to ensure effective coordination, communication and awareness raising relating to FAW management; (iv) development of capacity for FAW impact assessment; and (v) development of strategies for resource mobilization towards sustainable FAW management. Implementing the Eastern Africa Fall Armyworm Strategy and Implementation Plan (EAFAMSIP) will require partnerships and collaboration among a wide variety of stakeholders and organizations. Policy and decision-makers are encouraged to establish mechanisms to adapt EAFAMSIP to the national priorities and opportunities.
