    Strengthening monitoring and early warning systems for migratory pests of major food crops: Fall armyworm and African armyworm 2019
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Malawi has faced considerable challenges in the timely, effective and prioritized management of outbreaks of Fall Armyworm (FAW) and African Armyworm (AAW) in maize gardens belonging to vulnerable farming households due to limited capacity for regular monitoring and surveillance of the two pests. Both FAW and AAW occur at the national level leading to crop losses, and leaving smallholder households at risk of hunger and malnutrition with obvious impacts on their livelihoods. It is within this context that the government of Malawi in collaboration with FAO are implementing the project 'Strengthening monitoring and early warning systems for migratory pests of major food crops: Fall armyworm and African armyworm'. The project is working to make operational a national grid of monitoring and surveillance equipment that will be serviced by the mobile application Fall Armyworm Early Warning System (FAMEWS) and strengthen Community Based African Armyworm Surveillance Systems (CBAFS).
