The Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) in collaboration with Leopoldina hosted a workshop on Neonicotinoids and their Impact on Ecosystem Services for Agriculture and Biodiversity in Africa from 14-16 November 2018. The purpose of the workshop was to: • Bring together experts and researchers on the use and/or impact of neonicotinoid insecticides in Africa. • Establish a network for information exchange and joint activities • Develop a plan for future activities, their coordination and the dissemination of findings. African economies and societies are greatly dependent on agriculture; thus, the workshop aimed to identify and collate data which would allow the potential risks in Africa to be better evaluated.
