    The development of information technologies has truly changed our lives and the way we conduct business. In particular, the Internet has made it possible for us to access a wealth of information at a speed that was unimaginable even a few years ago. Providing access to information is an important instrument in the development of agriculture. For example, FAO maintains about 35 databases, some of which also publish their own specific country profiles such as for livestock, fishe ries, forestry, land and water use, pastures, food security, biotechnology, food safety, and animal and plant health. However, there is no database or country profiles for plant protection. There exists the International Phytosanitary Portal (IPP) for country phytosanitary information, but the unstructured format of the posted information makes it difficult to compile and compare the information in a systematic manner. No unified source of information exists for other plant pro tection areas such as pest and pesticide management, or the control of pest outbreaks. Recognizing the importance of efficient and transparent exchange of critical information as a means to improve regional cooperation and development, the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission began work on compiling member country plant protection profiles. The end product is this publication which is unique in this region and perhaps in the world, and may help formulate better strategies and policies for pest and pesticide management, provide early warning of dangerous trends and assist in regional harmonization and cooperation.

    The thirty-second session of the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) was held on 7–11 November 2022 in Bangkok, Thailand. The session of the Commission adopted the APPPC six-year Strategic Plan 2022–2028 and its biennium work programme 2023–2024, as well as approved the publication of the revised APPPC Regional Standard Setting Procedural Guidelines and Regional Implementation Guidance (RIG) for Phytosanitary Procedures for Seed Certification. The session reviewed the implementation of the workplan activities during 2020–2022 adopted at the 31st session and the financial report. Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic had significantly affected the implementation of the planned activities throughout the period, APPPC had planned and implemented various activities with support from the member countries. Based on the discussion of three Standing Committees on Plant Quarantine, Integrated Pest Management and Pesticide Management, the session adopted the proposed budget for the 2023–2024 biennium to implement the programmes for the strategic objectives and goals of the APPPC, those included organization of capacity development workshop under the work programmes of Standing Committees and the development of Regional Standard for Phytosanitary Measures led by Standard Committee. The session also invited the participants to consider 1983 and 1999 amendments to the Plant Protection Agreement for the Asia and Pacific region in pursuance of acceptance of amendments by members. For the effective operation of the regional system, the session approved the establishment of the APPPC Advisory Group to support the administration, management and monitoring of the APPPC biennium work programme. The session agreed to implement its biennium work programme effectively toward accomplishing the strategic objectives of the APPPC Strategic Plan. The next session of the Commission will be hosted by China in 2024.

    The FAO Subregional Office for Eastern Africa (FAOSFE), intends to regularly document regional approaches and best practices regarding crop production and protection aimed at promoting increased crop productivity and production to contribute to increased food security in the subregion. The Workshop was convened in order to consultatively engage stakeholders to review relevant crop production and protection activities which included plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRF A), seed delivery systems, post harvest handling for key commodities, inputs strategies, pesticide risk reduction and pesticide management, and integrated pest management with a view of obtaining input for the subregional reports on crop production and protection strategies and approaches. The Workshop was attended by participants who comprised representatives of governments from the Ministry of Agriculture (two senior officers per country). In addition, some participants and facilitat ors were invited to represent regional organizations for Eastern Africa (ASARECA and the DLCO-EA) as well as FAO Africa and Regional Offices (RAF, EARO and FAOSFS). The countries represented were Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Republic of South Sudan, Rwanda and Uganda.
