FAO: Red Palm Weevil threatens food security and livelihoods, but it can be contained and eradicated

12.03.2019 14:11 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of last week, the Red Palm Weevil Donor Meeting took place within Abu Dhabi (UAE), FAO reports. As to the report, the meeting, co-organized by the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, the Khalifa International Award for Date Palm and Agricultural Innovation and FAO, brought together agriculture ministers from the Near East and North Africa region and key regional and international organizations. As to the report, while addressing the meeting, FAO Director-General, José Graziano da Silva, said the Near East and North African countries can count on FAOs unwavering support in their fight to contain the spread of the Red Palm Weevil one of the world most invasive pest species. It is to be admitted, the Red Palm Weevil, an insect originating within South East Asia that has spread rapidly through the Near East and North Africa, is the most dangerous and destructive pest of palm trees worldwide. Feeding on the trees growing tissue from the inside, it is particularly difficult to detect during the early stages of infestation. Reportedly, da Silva praised the UAE-made US$2million contribution to the FAO five-year regional programme to combat the Red Palm Weevil. The funding was announced by Mariam Al Mehairi, UAE Minister of State for Food Security, during todays meeting. The FAO Director-General also thanked Libya for pledging US$250,000and the Arab Organization for Agricultural Development for pledging US$100,000. «Containing, controlling and ultimately eradicating the Red Palm Weevil is possible and FAO is at the forefront of these efforts,» da Silva summed up.
