Video Guest: Christian Borgermeister, ICIPE

Watch the interview with Christian Borgermeister, Director General of ICIPE - a pan-African research organisation focused on tropical insect science – to find out more about the way the two technologies that they have developed with support from the EU could dramatically improve the livelihoods of resource-poor farmers in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as the standard of living of East-Africa pastoralists.

Topics:
- The new tsetse repellent technology, using odors of waterbuck to keep at bay the tsetse flies.
- The 'Push-Pull' method: a conservation agricultural approach that exploits natural insect-plant and insect-insect relationships can be used to control pests as stemborers and striga weed in maize fields.
