Integrated Pest and Disease Management

Part of the CGIAR International Year of Plant Health Webinar Series


Webinar 3 examines integrated approaches for sustainable management of transboundary diseases and crop pests and their implications for agri-food system sustainability, social inclusion and gender equity. Drawing on both successes and enduring challenges, experts will identify the potential benefits of more gender-responsive approaches to pest and disease control; more coordinated action by national, regional and global organizations; and lessons to be learned from successful animal health management.

About the webinar series

The UN has designated 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). CGIAR’s IYPH 2020 events comprise a series of four webinars of global scope targeting scientists and researchers working in relevant fields. Each webinar will take an in-depth look at a different aspect of the crop supply chain, identifying areas for further research and opportunities to take current scientific innovations to scale, with the aim of boosting the long-term health of plants and the environment in low- and middle-income countries.
