3 Introduction to the TaiwanICDF The International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) is the dedicated international development organization representing the government of Taiwan Established in 1996 Core operations… Technical cooperation Humanitarian assistance Lending and investment International education and training Agricultural development is a very high priority

6 Our Expectations for the Project “Assist smallholder farmers in Lao PDR, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam to manage the fruit fly effectively, profitably and in an environmentally friendly manner.” Left: Bactrocera dorsalis Source: USDA/ Scott Bauer (2)Objective

7 Our Expectations for the Project (3)Expectations Increase GIS mapping of fruit fly distribution throughout the Mekong region Develop effective Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies Train seed trainers to disseminate knowledge of IPM Establish and develop farmers’ field schools (FFS) to disseminate knowledge of IPM Support academic research and utilize this research “in the field” Support regional workshops and consolidate region-wide channels for communication Right: Bactrocera cucurbitae Source: USDA/ Scott Bauer

8 Our Expectations for the Project Left: Asian Highway Network Right: Trans-Asian Railway Source: United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, Transport Division (4)Regional Integration Firstly … As the region becomes physically better integrated, we should ensure that other sectors also develop and integrate, regionally. Nowadays, agriculture needs to think “ regionally, ” too. Secondly … Regional integration offers many opportunities, but also a few challenges. And, some compelling reasons to increase our vigilance.

9 Future Support and Expectations In agriculture, one of the keys to long-term success is… …turning out produce that is of consistently high quality. Fruit fly management is part of a wider range of sanitary and phytosanitary measures that must be addressed in order to exploit the widest possible markets. Local  national  regional  international/ export markets
