The icipe Bee Health Project
Project Strategy

The overall strategy of the action is focused on developing linkages between participatory bee health management (PBHM) and beekeeping technology, pollination services, market access and bee health policy and legislation at both national and regional levels.

By linking them to productive beekeeping eco-systems (forest and cropland) in the participating countries, icipe and AU-IBAR will motivate communities to maintain bee health and conserve pollinators’ biodiversity, protect the environment, as well as improve food security and economic well-being in the regions. The strategy is outlined below.
