CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Scientists from CIFOR-ICRAF, the Department of Agricultural Research Services (DARS) in Malawi and the Zambia Agricultural Research Institute (ZARI) in Zambia will join participants at a project closure conference on the study ‘Developing Smallholder Strategies for Fall Armyworm (FAW) Management in Southern Africa: Examining the Effectiveness of Ecological Control Options’ conducted in Malawi and Zambia from July 2018 to June 2023. During this conference, scientists from CIFOR-ICRAF and ZARI will present findings from the study to promote the adoption of agroecological options for an approach embedded in integrated pest management (IPM).
