    Africa Phytosanitary Programme 2024
    Also available in:

    In Africa, the estimated crop damage by pests ranges from 30-60 percent or USD 65.5 billion annually. By building the resilience of their phytosanitary systems, countries can prevent the entry or spread of pests in their territories.This brochure describes the Africa Phytosanitary Programme (APP), an initiative through which the IPPC Secretariat is supporting countries in Africa, through their national plant protection organizations (NPPOs) to use digital tools to strengthen their phytosanitary capacity to monitor, detect, respond, and prevent plant pests, particularly pests affecting agricultural commodities of trade and economic significance. The IPPC is working in collaboration with the African Union Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Blue Economy, and Sustainable Environment. The pilot phase of APP is underway, involving 11 African countries, and a vision to support more countries in five years. The brochure gives an overview of the project and an update on the project's progress.

    Strenghtening Organic Agriculture in Uzbekistan - TCP/UZB/3501 2019

    No results found.

    Agriculture is a major sector of the economy in Uzbekistan, but agrifood quality and productivity problems reduce the country’s competitiveness in global markets. There are also significant environmental issues, such as wind and water erosion, and natural resources are being depleted. Quality guarantee systems, namely organic and Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), provide a certifiable and traceable system for high quality, sustainable products. Moreover, knowledge sharing and dissemination for these production systems can trigger the adoption of newly introduced techniques and help farmers access markets for high value products. In Uzbekistan, a lack of legislation, institutional framework, data and knowledge hindered the sound and rapid development of these guarantee systems. Therefore, this project aimed to increase rural and food security by increasing crop productivity and improving the competitiveness of domestic products and production of value-added products for export markets.

    Demonstration of Diversification and Sustainable Crop Production Intensification - TCP/UZB/3601 2020
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Agriculture represents the largest sector of Uzbekistan’s economy and has the potential to add to overall economic growth and raise rural incomes. However, the sector under irrigated farming conditions is characterized by the dominance of the cotton and wheat monocropping system, which has been the source of major phytosanitary and environmental problems, with repercussions throughoutthe Central Asia region. The overall objective of this project was to assist the Government of Uzbekistan in improving farmers’ competitiveness through the promotion of sustainable crop management techniques, characterized by higher productivity and cropping system diversification, while ensuring the environmental services that healthy agro-ecosystems provide. For this purpose, the project had a strong capacity-building component (demonstration and training) aimed at strengthening national capacities in both the implementation of sustainable agriculture systems (farmers, extension staff and government) and setting the basis for the formulation of related policies. Specifically, the projectaimed to achieve the following: ‒Address the irrigated agricultural sector, as this generates the largest proportion of GDP and directly supports the livelihoods of the largest share of the population. ‒Test, validate and demonstrate sustainable strategies for crop production intensification and diversification. ‒Develop policy recommendations to encourage the promotion of sustainable crop production intensification and diversification practices.
