Roger Day of CABI will speak on this subject of Fall armyworm and the problem of invasive species devastating crops and livelihoods. 24th January 2019.
The Fall Armyworm (FAW) has clearly demonstrated the global problem of invasive species. It is a highly damaging pest in its native Americas, but it unexpectedly appeared in Africa in 2016. Its rapid spread across sub-Saharan Africa has been followed by spread into Asia. CABI’s “Action on Invasives” programme aims to address the situation, tackling high priority species such as FAW as a way of strengthening capabilities of developing countries to respond to the increasing threat from invasive species.
Please join us on 24th Jan at the Strand Continental Hotel, London. Gather at 10.45 for coffee, 11.30 the talk starts, followed by Curry Lunch (£15 per head to cover coffee, venue and lunch). Book your place through Terry Wiles. See Events Pages for details.
