    These banners will be used as visibility materials at the first workshop of the Africa Phytosanitary Programme (APP) from 25-29 September in Cairo, Egypt. The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat and the African Union (AU) Commission of Agriculture are jointly implementing APP. The workshop will be attended by close to 100 participants from 11 African countries. The goal of APP is to empower national governments, through the National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs), with the capacity necessary to safeguard agriculture and natural resources against plant pests. The APP also intends to enhance Africa's regional collaboration on emerging plant health issues, especially those related to food security, climate change, and economic growth.

    Building Confidence among Trading Partners through Strengthened Electronic Phytosanitary Certification - GCP/GLO/827/JPN 2021

    The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is an international plant health agreement that aims to protect cultivated and wild plants by preventing the introduction and spread of pests. The IPPC has 184 contracting parties and is governed by the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM). Through the implementation of a separate FAO project, the IPPC has launched a new initiative to establish a global hub for electronic phytosanitary ePhyto ) certification. In order to enhance buy in and uptake beyond the vision of the ePhyto hub project, an increased and consistent demand for use of the hub was envisioned. The objective of the present project was to improve the capacity of countries to implement standards on import and export certification using an ePhyto solution and to enhance their ability for pest exclusion. The project was designed to provide complementary resources to support ePhyto hub activities, as well as complementary actions on implementation, such as capacity development workshops, training sessions and meetings, particularly in the areas of risk communication and risk management based on pest risk analysis.

    For Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, North Macedonia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, plant protection in agriculture and forestry is important for food safety and economic development Not only do plants ensure sustainable nutrition for society, but they also support international trade in plants or plant products As plants are hosts for many pests, international trade is inherently associated with risks of pest introduction and spread National phytosanitary systems based on the International Plant Protection Convention ( and International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures ( aim at reducing those risks Even though the ISPMs are available on the website of the IPPC, National Plant Protection Organizations ( often have insufficient knowledge of them In practice, this may translate into difficulties in discussions with other NPPOs, especially on trade related issues Moreover, as ISPMs are revised and updated, especially to reflect new scientific achievements, periodic training is necessary to keep NPPOs and their officers informed about recent developments The main objective of this project was to enhance the capacities of the national phytosanitary systems operated by the NPPOs of the recipient countries to better prevent the risks associated with the introduction and spread of pests that can occur through international trade in plants and plant products Among the key elements of national phytosanitary systems are surveillance systems, which enable reliable determination of the presence or absence of pests in the territories or parts of territories of countries, early detection of newly introduced pests and determination of areas of their spread within the country Monitoring surveys are used to verify the characteristics of pest populations within countries, enabling timely reaction and the prevention of economic damage to crops The project built the capacities of the NPPOs in the participating countries on the identification of pests and on phytosanitary certificates through the delivery of training sessions These were based on international standards adopted under the IPPC, which provide guidance for NPPOs around the world on the harmonization of their actions to combat plant pests for international trade in plants and plant products.
