Regional review 2022 and 2023 planning workshop of SyRIMAO project

In face of the fruit fly population’s pressure on horticultural production which negatively impacted population food security, health, social security and the environment, ECOWAS set up a project in 2014 to support its Regional Plan for Fruit Fly Control in West Africa (“PLMF”).

The PLMF project, for a total amount of €23.5 million, was funded to by the European Union (EU), the French Development Agency (“AFD”), ECOWAS and its member states and was implemented between 2015 and 2019. The project achieved significant results, including the establishment of a surveillance, monitoring and alert system for effective and targeted fruit fly control in 11 countries out of the 15 member countries. Moreover, the project achieved under its research component, the development of promising fruit fly control technologies, and the strengthening of the capacities of the National Fruit and Vegetable Specialization Center (“CNS-FL”) of Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso). However, these important achievements remain weak and need to be finalized, consolidated, perpetuated and scaled up in the 15 ECOWAS Member States.


In this perspective, ECOWAS and its partners, AFD and the EU, have financed a second phase of the project, named the "Innovative Regional Fruit Fly Control System in West Africa" (SyRIMAO). This project, of a total amount of €13,935,000, is financed by the EU (€7.5 millions), AFD (€3.935 millions) as well as ECOWAS and its member states (€2.5 millions).


SyRIMAO project has started on September 1st, 2020 by the signature of the grant agreement between UE and AFD.


The 2021 Annual and Budget Work Plan (ABWP) has planned to organize a regional review and planning workshop, with all the National Committee during the last quarter in Abidjan.
