Predicting climate change induced vulnerability of African agricultural systems to major insect pests through advanced insect phenology modeling, and decision aid development for adaptation planning

Beschreibung:

Goal:

African agriculture (farmers, national agricultural research institutions, policy makers, etc.) copes with the risk of exacerbating and expanding insect pests due to climate change; and, adaptation strategies minimize major pest-related crop losses. Purpose:

• Vulnerability of crops to pests induced by climate change determined through phenology modeling, and a database on temperature-driven phenology models developed and computeraide tools provided for pest risk mapping and adaptation planning. • Scientists and IPM practitioners use the project tools for: country-specific pest risk assessments, adaptation planning, improving their pest management strategies, and for providing information to policy makers to improve national pest management and quarantine programs.
