This theme delves into pollination ecosystem service valuation, pollination services/beneficial insects’ impact, climate change effects on ecosystems, pollination services, and insects, as well as threats to icipe innovations. It also studies the impact of agrochemicals on ecosystems and health, climate-smart and climate-resilient innovations on SEE outcomes, and the consequences of climate shocks on health issues like malaria and other diseases.
