Welcome to NA-IPC (Nuclear Applications for Insect Pest Control)!
The Insect Pest Control Subprogramme of the Joint FAO/IAEA Programme of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture plays a key role in the dissemination of nuclear and related technology information by providing Member States with factual, comprehensive and current information about strategies, techniques, products and processes in the topics of area-wide integrated pest management and the Sterile Insect Technique.
The Insect Pest Control Subprogramme provides technical support to Member States through strategic advice, technical support, policies and procedures, public information, international standard-setting, and networking. The three databases (TWD, DIR-SIT, IDIDAS) included in this site provide access to the general public as well as to the popular scientific audience on scientific and technical information related to the integration of nuclear and genetic pest management techniques in the control of insect pests of agriculture, livestock and human health.
These databases are a valuable addition to the technical support to Member States provided through the websites of the Insect Pest Control and Food and Environmental Protection subprogrammes of the Joint FAO/IAEA Programme. They are available in this IAEA NUCLEUS portal for nuclear knowledge and information because it is the common access point for the IAEA scientific, technical and regulatory information resources.
