    The Red Palm Weevil (RPW, or Rhynchophorus ferrugineus) is a major transboundary pest that originated in South Asia and is rapidly spreading around the world. FAO, with key international and national stakeholders, is promoting a national and regional programme for RPW management in the Near East and North Africa (NENA) region. The programme facilitates the coordination of regional efforts to ensure an integrated and sustainable approach to controlling the RPW and reducing its devastating effects on date-palm production, the food and income security of rural communities, and the ecology of affected areas.
