The project relates to emergency assistance for integrated control of fall armyworm invasion. It was designed to provide a direct and immediate response to the emergency following the invasion of this formidable pest of the main food crops and market gardening of Burkina Faso. Indeed, because of the scale of the invasion and the aggression of the pest, the aid aims to support the efforts made by the State and its partners for an effective fight against this fall armyworm and safeguard the harvesting of the current season and that of the next dry season, essential conditions for ensuring food security for the population. Emergency aid will initially limit the spread of the pest and the loss of production. Treatment equipment and biological and chemical products with a low impact on the fragile environment will be acquired and used on the plots of infested crops and also on the other host crops of the fall armyworm. The project has three (03) main components, namely: (1) strengthening biological and chemical control; (2) strengthening biological and chemical control; and (3) audit.
The main objective of this operation is to contribute to the fight against the invasion of the fall armyworm. The project aims to contribute to the sustainable management of the fall armyworm and reduce the production losses of food crops (maize in particular), in order to strengthen the food and nutritional security of vulnerable populations in Burkina Faso.
The main beneficiaries of the project are the affected producers and vulnerable households.
