Short course: Integrated pest management and food safety

Increased environmental awareness has led to the need for sustainable agricultural production systems. Good Agricultural Practices and IPM have become essential components of sustainable agriculture. The integration of the various control measures, where pesticides are used only as a last resort, ensures that pests remain below the economic threshold, thus supporting food safety and international market access. To realise this, supportive and enabling policies and institutions are required. The course is aimed at realising multi-stakeholder processes, with the aim to develop enabling IPM and/or pesticides-related policies. Participants will enhance their ability to identify and solve problems in IPM and related aspects. It entails a mix of lectures, discussions, group work, excursions and fieldwork. Meeting colleagues from other countries with similar interests leads to mutual learning. Scholarships available!
