icipe in Uganda
icipe opened an office in Uganda in 2012. Based in Tororo, eastern Uganda, the office was mandated to disseminate the Centre’s Push-Pull technology, with support from the programme team based at the icipe Thomas Odhiambo campus, Mbita, on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya. These early efforts enabled the expansion of the technology to four districts in eastern Uganda.
