The final report of the workshop to discuss the end of the Fruit Fly project and draw lessons from its implementation has been published. The report highlights the results achieved in the four main components. These include surveillance, fighting against the scourge, building capacity, and applied research.
Ten West African countries implemented the Fruit Fly Project from 2015 to 2019. Designed to manage the fruit fly pests, this project was funded by the European Union (EU), the Economic Commission of West African States (ECOWAS), and the French Development Agency. The West and Central African Council for Agriculture Research and Development (CORAF) had responsibilities over the adaptive research component.
