The Fall Armyworm (FAW) pest is a serious threat to food security in Africa, potentially causing loss of 8.3 to 20.6 million tons of maize per year if uncontrolled. FAW not only affects production of a staple food crop in the East Africa region, but also undermines the economic viability of Africa’s emerging private seed sector.
The Horn of Africa is an area with scarce natural resources and that is vulnerable to food security crises, threatening traditional pastoral livelihoods. In 2011, the Horn of Africa faced the worst drought in 60 years, leading to famine in Somalia, and emergency food insecurity levels in Kenya and Ethiopia. At the peak of the drought, more than 13 million people across the region required humanitarian assistance, and more than 700,000 refugees fled Somalia.
