Pest Risk Atlas for Africa

During the 2017 CSI Meeting in Cali, Henry Juarez from CIP presented a new online knowledge platform, Pest Distribution and Risk Atlas for Africa.

Developed in collaboration with the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe) and International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA), the Atlas presents the pest risk assessments under current and potential future climates for a number of important insect pests of agricultural and horticultural crops in Africa (e.g., potato, sweetpotato, vegetables, maize, cassava, and fruit).

Example: Changes in abundance of the potato tuber moth, Phthorimaea operculella, in potato production regions worldwide.
