Biography

The Centre’s mission is to use insect science for sustainable development, to ensure food security and improve the overall health of communities in Africa by addressing the interlinked problems of poverty, poor health, low agricultural productivity and environmental degradation. Since its founding, ICIPE has remained committed to developing and disseminating environmentally safe, affordable, acceptable and accessible tools and strategies to control insect pests and disease vectors. ICIPE’s mandate further extends to the sustainable conservation and the use of Africa’s rich biodiversity. ICIPE is the only international institution in Africa working primarily on arthropods. Therefore capacity building of individual researchers and institutions in Africa is an integral part of all the Centre’s research and development activities. ICIPE also aims to empower women, harness the youth and build capacity to use, transfer and teach the Centre’s technologies. I believe this network will provide a great platform necessary to achieve the greater goal of developing research and improving the science community at large by improving communication between different institutions, scholars and renown scientists.
