The Pesticide Management Initiative in the East African Region (PEAR-Kenya) supports Integrated Pest Management (IPM), food safety and the reduction of risks of pest control products use.
In order to contribute to sustainable agriculture production, Dutch experts on pesticide management & IPM from Wageningen University and Research (WUR) and other Dutch organisations collaborate together with Kenyan stakeholders in this project funded by the Netherlands. The project is part of a larger initiative on harmonization of pesticide management in the East-African Region.
In the first week of June 2018 the Advisory Committee (AC) of the PEAR-Kenya project visited the Netherlands on invitation by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). The projects’ AC members are drawn from organisations that deal with pesticides and IPM in one way or another and include PCPB, KEPHIS, MoA&I, AAK, FPEAK, KFC, University, IBMA-Kenya and ICIPE.
