Report – A critical assessment and analysis of the 2012 and 2016 IPPC general surveys








  • critically assess the questionnaires of the 2012 and 2016 surveys;
  • evaluate the comparability between the 2012 and 2016 questionnaires;
  • review the existing analysis reports;
  • re-analyse the 2012 and 2016 results;
  • conduct a comparative analysis of the 2012 and 2016 data to establish whether changes in implementation of the Convention can be determined.

    Global Emerging Issues: A report of findings from the 2016 IPPC regional workshops questionnaire 2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    As part of the FAO foresight initiative, the Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS) prepared the questionnaire - Emerging Issues in Plant Health (Annex 1) that was sent to all contracting parties participating in the 2016 IPPC Regional Workshops. The questionnaire asked participating contracting parties and RPPOs to list the five most important emerging issues related to plant health in the next two to five years and provide short explanations for each issue. The analysis of questionnaire responses was undertaken by the IPPC Secretariat to identify emerging issue trends within and between regions. The findings of this questionnaire are therefore presented globally and regionally. This information gained from the questionnaire responses will help the IPPC Secretariat, RPPOs and the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) understand national and regional emerging issues and trends between geographic areas.

    Study on the use of International Plant Protection Convention diagnostic protocols
    Implementation Review and Support System survey on the use of International Plant Protection Convention diagnostic protocols
    2022

    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.

    The IPPC Observatory is an evaluation system of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that monitors the implementation of the IPPC, the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs) and the recommendations of the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM). The observatory provides national plant protection organizations (NPPOs) data and information that will help them improve their implementation. The Observatory conducts general surveys that provide NPPOs with a global picture of the challenges and best practices in implementation. Likewise, desk studies on topics that impact implementation help NPPOs adjust or develop their national phytosanitary activities.
