FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific

Regional Conference on Fall Armyworm (FAW)

20/03/2019-22/03/2019 Bangkok, Thailand


As FAW continues to spread, FAO is poised to help member countries be aware of the threat, take action to monitor arrival, take early action, learn lessons from other regions, further strengthen the community of international experts, develop regional, national plans’ of action, and identify the current knowledge gaps to identify research priorities and work closely with farmers and their organizations in responding.

To begin this process in Asia, an Consultative Meeting on FAW in Asia is scheduled to take place in Bangkok, Thailand from March 20-22, 2019. FAO will work closely with the IPPC and other partners to bring together relevant scientists and practitioners to share knowledge and experiences and help the region prepare for the continued spread of FAW in Asia.
