Key challenges for sustainable pest management



Welcome to the survey "Key challenges and solutions for sustainable pest management".

We are a team of interdisciplinary researchers from leading international universities and research institutions led by Niklas Möhring (CEBC-CNRS, France) and Robert Finger (ETH Zurich, Switzerland).

The goal of this survey is to provide an overview of the key challenges and solutions for sustainable pest management across different agricultural regions worldwide. To get a holistic overview of challenges and solutions, we are highly interested in the evaluation of experts from different regions, disciplines and professions.

We therefore highly value your participation.

Based on survey results we will inform policymakers, researchers and food-value chain actors on key challenges and pathways for advancing sustainable pest management.


Filling out the survey will only take you around 5-10 min.

Answers will be anonymized.


Thank you in advance for your participation!
