Third FAO–IAEA international conference on area-wide management of insect pests: Integrating the sterile insect and related nuclear and other techniques

22–26 May 2017, Vienna, Austria. Third FAO–IAEA international conference on area-wide management of insect pests: Integrating the sterile insect and related nuclear and other techniques. Following the two previous conferences organized by FAO and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 1998 and 2005, this third conference will address technical, managerial and socio-economic components of operational area-wide programmes. The general purpose of the conference is to present new developments, trends and challenges related to insect pest management, both in the fields of agriculture and public health. The concept of area-wide integrated pest management, in which the total population of a pest in an area is targeted, is central to the effective application of the sterile insect technique and is increasingly being considered for related genetic, biological and other pest suppression technologies.
