    In 2016, the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures adopted a recommendation on the importance of pest diagnosis. The recommendation stresses the importance of pest diagnosis in underpinning many activities involved in the implementation of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). The recommendation encourages regional plant protection organizations and contracting parties to share knowledge and expertise, and support laboratory capacity in diagnostic protocols. Encouraging national plant protection organizations to maximize the utilization of diagnostic protocols as official procedures to adequately fulfil their obligations under the IPPC is essential. There remain, however, some strategic issues associated with pest diagnosis that should be integral to all aspects of the IPPC work program. It is in this context that a survey was conducted within the framework of the Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS) on IPPC diagnostic protocols, under the remit of the Implementation and Capacity Development Committee. This report presents the results of the survey, reflects the data received from participants, and illustrates the analysis and recommendations for optimizing the use of diagnostic protocols.

    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).

    The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Text makes provisions for the global protection of plant health from pests. The Convention aims to guide the 185 IPPC contracting parties' national plant protection organization as well as policy- and decision-makers and national administrators. The Convention seeks to promote international cooperation in protecting plants, agricultural products, and natural resources from pests, to support achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty and hunger, protect the environment from the impacts of climate change, and to facilitate safe international trade.
