    The 13th FAO/WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Management (JMPM),1 hosted by FAO, was held online via Zoom on the afternoons of 20 and 21 October 2020. The length of this year’s meeting was significantly reduced from the usual three-and-a-half days to two half days, because the COVID-19 pandemic obliged the group to meet virtually. The meeting included: an update on activities of FAO, WHO and UNEP; a review of progress in the production of new FAO/WHO guidance and revision of existing guidelines; presentation of the draft Global action plan for highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs); presentations and exchanges on emerging issues such as illegal trade of pesticides and online Internet pesticide sales; and other issues relevant to the International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management (the Code of Conduct).
