South-South and Triangular Cooperation

Tembani – A Zimbabwean Forestry Officer tackling invasive pests

This video tells the story of Tembani, an inspiring young Zimbabwean forestry officer who is battling against alien invasive pests that are threatening Eucalyptus trees and woodlots around the country. His work is being supported by FAO and the Africa Solidarity Trust Fund (ASTF) through training in integrated pest management, national surveillance programmes, and the introduction of biological controls to control the spread of the pests. South-South Cooperation with South Africa has been key to tackle the invasive pests.
