    The IPPC communications strategy 2023–2030 is a road map for the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) community for effectively informing, advocating and engaging stakeholders to protect global plant health. Aligned with the IPPC Strategic Framework 2020–2030, the strategy details the IPPC’s communication objectives, value proposition, target audiences and stakeholders, key messages and channels, methods of monitoring and evaluating impact, and milestones to be achieved. Raising public awareness on how vital plant health is to global food security, the environment and international trade requires a cohesive global road map that communicates more thoughtfully and proactively the need to support the IPPC mission. The IPPC, ratified by 184 contracting parties, makes provisions to achieve this, along with International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs). The convention and standards, once adopted and implemented by parties, are seen to protect plant health and ultimately contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development goals particularly in achieving zero hunger, protecting the environment against plant pests and climate change impact, and providing decent livelihoods by protecting trade and economies from the impact of plant pests. Communication, thus, needs to be strategic and impactful to generate greater and sustainable investments while creating ripples of positive behavior change towards protecting global plant health. With eight communication milestones identified in the strategy, the IPPC community is moving towards more innovative ways of communicating by enhancing digital platforms such as the International Phytosanitary Portal and facilitating greater engagement through social media. IPPC communications is moving from the traditional one-way, top-down process with the establishment of a Community of Practice in communication to allow a more robust and timely knowledge exchange, information sharing and collaboration. These approaches and how to operationalize them are captured in the IPPC communications strategy 2023–2030.

    International Plant Health Conference - Report
    London, 21–23 September 2022

    The world’s leading authorities on plant health came together for the world’s first-ever International Plant Health Conference (IPHC), co-organized by FAO, the Secretariat of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) of the United Kingdom. More than 500 policymakers, academics and experts from more than 74 countries convened on 21-23 September at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London to address current and future plant health challenges, including food security, the impacts of climate change, environmental protection, facilitating safe trade, and new pest and disease pathways, such as e-commerce. Protecting plant health is critical in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Healthy plants contribute to achieving food security for all (SDG 2 Zero Hunger) and promote responsible food consumption and production (SDG 12). Protecting plants helps protect biodiversity and the environment from the impact of plant pests (SDG 13 and 15), and facilitates safe trade, in turn providing decent job opportunities and boosting economic growth (SDG 8). More than 120 speakers across 20 sessions and delegates shared knowledge and discussed global scientific, technical and regulatory issues, alongside actions to tackle these existential threats to our society, economy and environment. More than 1350 viewers followed the conference via webcast during different sessions. A total of 55 research posters were presented, including 30 from early career researchers. The International Plant Health Conference supports the delivery of the IPPC Strategic Framework 2020-2030.

    Supporting the Implementation of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) - GCP/GLO/025/EC 2024

    Established in 1952, the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) seeks to protect the world’s plants from pests. The IPPC adopts International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs) and recommendations from the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), which is the governing body of the IPPC, to carry out its mission. A central issue to the IPPC and the ISPMs is a lack of phytosanitary capacity among Contracting Parties (CPs), especially developing and least developed countries, to implement the Convention and the ISPMs efficiently. This impacts international trade. This project was designed to tackle the three root causes of the issue: (i) a lack of participation among CPs in IPPC governing bodies; (ii) low levels of technical capacity; and (iii) a lack of engagement among developing countries in the Standard Setting Process (SSP).
