Fifth workshop on pollinator monitoring as part of the Easy-RIDER project.

In this 2 hours session we will have researchers of Indian origin or researchers working in Indian organisations present their work on insect monitoring. The three talks comprise the use of a mobile application for pest management by smallholder cotton farmers in rural India, insect biodiversity monitoring and conservation in the northern western ghats of India, and designing machine learning tools for moth camera traps. The talks will be followed by a short discussion on ways to increase cross-geography collaborations.
