Key Objective & Expected Outputs

____________________________________________________

The main objective of the project is to establish and develop a framework for maintenance of areas free and under low prevalence of fruit fly pests in South Africa and Mozambique.

The expected outputs are:

  • Established Pest Free Areas (PFAs) in South Africa and Mozambique for target fruit fly species

  • Scientifically based evidence for specified low fruit fly prevalence levels for target fruit fly pests

  • Established Areas of Low Pest Prevalence (ALPPs) in South Africa and Mozambique for target fruit fly species

  • Operational database platform for determination of fruit fly status in different regions in South Africa and Mozambique

  • Identification protocol and service for rapid and unambiguous recognition of fruit fly pests and related taxa

  • Financial model for maintenance of PFAs and ALPPs for target fruit fly pests
