Global collaboration to tackle Fusarium TR4

The World Banana Forum is a space where the main stakeholders of the global banana supply-chain work together to achieve consensus on best practices for sustainable production and trade. We believe collaboration is the key for progress. Given the global importance of the Fusarium TR4 disease in bananas and the need to tackle it, the objective of this session is to facilitate the dialogue around TR4 and the international and inclusive collaboration that helps to manage it and prevent its spread. Correspondingly, to understand its impact in the banana value chain, highlighting the implications it has in assuring sustainable and resilient livelihoods as well as food security in producing countries.
