The 2022 Africa Regional Priority Setting Workshop will continue our important collaborative work to establish international MRLs and break down trade barriers for specialty crops. The overall goal is to develop a list of top pest management priorities for the region.
To start the priority setting process, we held an inception workshop to explain the purpose and entire priority setting process on July 27, 2022. A recording of the workshop and presentations in English and French are available below.
