Fall Armyworm (FAW) is an invasive and damaging pest endemic to the Americas that is spreading across Africa and Asia, particularly targeting maize, a vital staple crop. FAW will have long-term effects on crop yields, food supplies, livelihoods, trade, and threaten the resilience of chronically vulnerable populations. In this webinar, participants will hear expert presentations that highlight important research and dissemination tools developed by USAID and its partners to support the management of FAW by smallholder farmers and local plant protection offices. Panelists will reflect on the success of response interventions to date and capture key learning that will enable the development community to better respond to similar pest and disease outbreaks in the future.
