Evidence to fight crop loss

We are collecting evidence on the impact of insects, weeds and diseases on crops, helping farmers and policymakers to fight back. And we need your help….

The Global Burden of Crop Loss initiative is modelled after the Global Burden of Disease initiative in human health, which has transformed health policy, research, over the last 25 years through better use of data. 

We aim to have a similar impact in agriculture, providing evidence to enable the global plant health community to generate actionable information and lead to a dramatic reduction in crop loss. 

We are currently working to lay the groundwork for this initiative – engaging with a wide range of stakeholders, developing our methodology, and building a comprehensive research and data collection network.
