This Technical Cooperation Project (TCP) between icipe and FAO primarily targets small scale and commercial fruit and vegetable growers whose livelihood and income is at stake due to the invasion of the African invader fly. The project seeks to harmonize approaches to tackle the threats posed by fruit flies in Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe (BONAZAZI). Activities include regular surveillance and creation of a platform for sharing information, assisting other affected countries within the SADC region to deal with the fruit fly menace and contribute to sustainable regional control actions. The project will see farmers regain international market access and improve household food and nutrition security.
