The three Core Activities of IRAC are Crop Protection, Biotechnology and Public Health. Crop Protection is the area where traditionally IRAC has been most active and as a result a number of Working Groups have been formed where the majority of the work is carried. Hence the Crop Protection Team largely acts in a coordinating role for the Crop Working Groups and most of the information can be found under the relevant Crop Team Pages, Lepidoptera, Coleoptera and Sucking Pests.

- Increase IRAC footprint
- Develop IRM guidelines
- Development of joint baseline/monitoring programs
- Investigate and make recommendations on the extent that IRAC should be involved in other IPM activities that impact IRM
- Continue to produce high quality educational material and IRM educational tools
