Scientific Program

The purpose of the conference is to familiarize participants with new developments, trends and challenges related to insect pest management, both in the fields of agriculture and public health, and to foster a broad exchange of information. The conference and its deliberations and conclusions will provide useful feedback to the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture and, in particular, to its future programme to address Member States’ needs in the rapidly evolving field of insect pest management. It will also highlight the challenges faced by Member States, such as the loss of insecticides due to resistance and other causes, climate change, and the global spread of invasive species and diseases in new regions.


The programme will be divided in 6 sessions:

  • Operational AW-IPM Programmes

  • Economic Impact and Regulatory Issues

  • Mosquitoes and Human health

  • Livestock Pests and Animal Health

  • Climate Change, Global Trade and Invasive Species

  • Tools for Integrated Programmes and New Developments
