Protecting the Pollinators. Since 2014, Kenya’s ICIPE has been home to the Bee Health Reference Laboratory – a facility that is now Africa’s recognized center for the international effort to understand and protect the insects that help pollinate 71 of the world’s 100 most important food crops. Since its founding, the laboratory has produced original research studying the disease resistance of African bees and documenting the causes behind the colony collapse that has been killing bees across the world for years.
