Human Capacity Development

Building human capacities to carry out plant protection work and react rapidly with the appropriate measures.

Building human capacities to carry out plant protection work, to effectively monitor various pests and to spot outbreaks, as well as novel or alien pests at early stages, and to react rapidly with the appropriate measures, is one of the priority areas and is given a continuous effort.

This not only in view of compensating for the high staff fluctuation in the national plant protection services, but also to cope with new technical developments, to make knowledge of pest identification and management options available to the lowest level especially women farmers, and to foster the establishment of community based pest information systems.
