To strengthen coordination, FAO has facilitated the establishment of twelve technical working groups (TWG), which became functional during the second half of 2017. They are a further development of the work streams that were discussed during the Nairobi meeting. They bring together experts from relevant development partners to share, review, discuss, prioritize and develop joint work plans and proposals. The TWGs directly support the components of the Framework. The on-going engagement in this technical coordination has resulted in putting more technical substance into the Framework for partnership for the sustainable management of Fall Armyworm.

The technical working groups are on: Yield loss determination; Biological control; Bio-pesticides; Risk & impact assessment; Monitoring & early warning; Communication, awareness & knowledge management; Farmer Field Schools, extension and plant clinics; Agroecology; Synthetic chemical pesticides; Host plant resistance; Transgenic resistance; and Quarantine & phytosanitary measures.
