Fall Armyworm (FAW) has increasingly spread around the world over the last few years, affecting many countries in Africa, the Near East, Asia and the Pacific. As a result of its rapid and inexorable spread, the pest became soon a threat to global food security and the livelihoods of millions of smallholder families all over the world.
To respond to this global threat and scale-up international efforts to stop and control the spread of FAW worldwide, FAO launched a three-year Global Action for Fall Armyworm Control. As the international standards setting body for plant health, the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is called upon to make its part and play a crucial role in implementing the global action to reduce the risk of further introduction of FAW into new territories.
