Using integrated pest management to help Albanian apple farmers increase their income
Published: July, 2014
Despite significant progress made over the past 15 years, the agricultural sector in Albania remains underdeveloped, characterized by low technology, low productivity and institutions that struggle with a lack of funding, as well as poor connection to international partners.
To tackle these problems, between 2008 and 2011, CABI implemented a project in Albania, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), on Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This was followed by a three-year institutional partnership project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) within the Scientific Co-operation between Eastern Europe and Switzerland (SCOPES) programme.
