BIORISK MANAGEMENT FACILITY
The Biorisk Management Facility (BIMAF) is designed to facilitate the development of multi-country projects beyond its geographic scope. BIMAF identifies new agricultural challenges and outlines future actions necessary to meet its priority goals. It also emphasizes the need for improved collaboration and coordination with existing strategies. Not only researchers but also the civil society including farming communities, non-government organizations, and public and private structures should be involved to sustainably address challenges posed by biotic stresses and climate change on agricultural production.
