STATISTICS

Organized 5 successful workshops in Israel and the West Bank with more than 200 leading Palestinian farmers and agriculturalists.

Pest Managment Without Borders

 
Project Aim

This project promotes the use of environmentally-friendly pest control methods amongst Palestinian, Israeli and Jordanian farmers in order to minimize the regional spread of destructive pests and the regional use of toxic pesticides.

 

How It Works

This project brings together Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian farmers, introducing
environmentally-friendly pest control methods as an effective alternative to commonly used toxic pesticides, which are harmful to humans, animals, plants and to the ecosystem as a whole. Such methods combat insect pests like the Red Palm Weevil, the Olive Fly and field-crop attacking rodents, which cause significant crop damages annually. Demonstration sites have been established in Israel, the West Bank and Jordan and farmers attend joint workshops at each of the demonstration sites, learning how to implement the environmentally-friendly pest control methods and how to transfer the knowledge and techniques to their respective farmer communities. In addition, decision makers in Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority are working together to address how policy and legislation can be utilized to regulate pesticide use and to incentivize use of biological pest control methods. This project began in 2009 and is run in partnership with Tel Aviv University, the Amman Center for Peace and Development, and a Palestinian partner, funded by the European Union Partnership for Peace Program.
