The Sub regional office of the FAO for North Africa supported the Arab Maghreb Union (UMA) and the Near East Plant Protection Organization (NEPPO) in organizing a workshop for Maghreb in order to revitalize and strengthen the exchange and cooperation between the countries of the sub-region in the protection of plants against the menace of two main pests threatening the date palms production (the red palm weevil) and olive trees (the Xylella fastidiosa bacterium).

Given the urgency of the situation, FAO launched a Regional Technical Cooperation Program to assist countries in the Middle East and North Africa in facing the threat of the Xylella fastidiosa on olive trees. A new Technical Cooperation Program (TCP) of Emergency is also being prepared to assist the government of Mauritania in controlling the red palm weevil in the Tidjikja oasis.
