This joint international project involves Egypt, Ethiopia, Israel and Zimbabwe. It aims to develop integrated methods for the control of whitefly and aphids, .the insects that cause stickiness. The CFC approved the project in 1994 for a research period of four years and extended it into a fifth year. The project is now in its fourth year and managed by a management committee at the Israel Cotton Production and Marketing Board Ltd., designated by the Fund Project Execution Agency (PEA). Training programmes and workshops are planned for the concluding years of the project, including comprehensive reports and summaries of the findings, along with guideline manuals for end users.
