    The Director-General welcomed the participants noting that this such a high-level virtual meeting was unprecedented and an example of his vision for a digital FAO. The DG expressed his appreciation to the participants for their interest in the Global Action for Fall Armyworm Control. He underlined how FAO was uniquely positioned to spearhead the Global Action, as the centre for technical support and coordination from the global to the national level. He also reiterated collecting the need to leverage countries’ expertise, while enabling regional and international collaboration to complement each other. The Global Action Secretariat summarized the main objectives and desired outcomes of the Global Action, and as well as the underlying reasons for why rapid reaction is needed. A brief presentation was given on the innovative mobile application FAMEWS (Fall Armyworm Monitoring and Early Warning System) mobile application, which had been launched on Google play that same day. The terms of reference for the Steering Committee and the Technical Committee were presented. The new FAO Office for Innovation was introduced.
