icipe Annual Report 2020

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to present the 2020 icipe Annual Report, a relic of gratitude for our accomplishments in one of the most difficult years in recent history. With utmost humility, we acknowledge the support, partnerships and numerous elements that made these achievements possible.

At icipe, we are aware that the COVID-19 pandemic recovery journey, no doubt bound to be challenging, mandates us all to be even more resilient, determined and united. In addition, we believe that in this process, the role of science, technology and innovation (STI) will become increasingly important. And so, in this publication we make a rallying call, in harmony to broader efforts to protect stability and predictability of funding for STI.

It is our hope that this Annual Report will serve as evidence for return of investment in insect science specifically and in STI in general, as a way of building and securing Africa’s prosperity.

Yours sincerely,

Segenet Kelemu, PhD
Director General & CEO
