Global Action for Fall Armyworm Control

An integral part of FAO’s sustainable management programme for FAW is the FAW Monitoring and Early Warning System (FAMEWS). This consists of a mobile app – available free of charge from the Google Play store – for data collection and a global platform for mapping the current situation.

FAW data and maps there will provide valuable insights on how FAW populations change over time with ecology, in order to better understand its behaviour and to help to guide best management practices.
