    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.

    Enhancing Protection of Plant Resources from Pests in Developing Countries - GCP/GLO/877/EC 2023
    Also available in:

    Due to rapid globalization, international travel and trade are greater than ever before, and as people and commodities move around the world, organisms that present risks to plants travel with them. The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is an international plant health agreement, which aims to protect cultivated and wild plants by preventing the introduction and spread of pests. Of the 184 IPPC contracting parties, 130 are from developing countries, and there is an increasing demand for technical assistance to improve their capacity to establish and maintain efficient plant protection institutions and framework. Against this background, the European Union funded Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS) project has been operating, since 2012, as the tool used by the IPPC to identify contracting parties’ challenges and opportunities for the implementation of the Convention and International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs). This project was implemented to build on the results delivered in the first and second project cycles of the IRSS; and to improve contracting parties’ implementation of the IPPC, ISPMs and Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) recommendations.
