Monitoring and evaluation of pest management programs

GENFS4_picIt is essential to monitor the effects of any pest animal management activity to ensure it is having the desired results.  Pest animals are one of many land management problems that can affect the functioning of agricultural production  systems and ecosystems. These systems are complex and we do not fully understand them, so it is important to consider
the effects different management interventions might have, and potential unexpected or unwanted outcomes. An important part of effective pest management is evaluating the results of a program against the outcomes you intended to achieve.
