To respond to this global threat and scale-up international efforts to stop and control the spread of FAW worldwide, FAO launched a three-year Global Action for Fall Armyworm Control. As the international standards setting body for plant health, the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is called upon to make its part and play a crucial role in implementing the global action to reduce the risk of further introduction of FAW into new territories.
