    Contributing to the Long-Term Goal of Ensuring Plant Health Globally - GCP/GLO/424/EC 2024

    The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). The emphasis of the year was on increasing awareness among the public and policy-makers of the importance of healthy plants and the need to protect them in order to achieve the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In this context, the Assembly invited FAO, in collaboration with the IPPC, to serve as the lead agency to spearhead activities, and called on governments, civil society and the private sector to engage at global, regional and national levels. One of the key global events envisaged on the theme of plant health was the first International Plant Health Conference (IPHC). Following Finland’s withdrawal as host of the event due to the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland confirmed its willingness to host the conference in September 2022. The event aimed to address new and emerging challenges such as the impact of climate change impact, the increase in international trade, the rapid loss of biodiversity and new pest pathways such as e-commerce. It also explored more efficient policies, structures and mechanisms at the national, regional and global levels to address these issues.

    IPPC communications strategy 2023–2030 2023

    The IPPC communications strategy 2023–2030 is a road map for the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) community for effectively informing, advocating and engaging stakeholders to protect global plant health. Aligned with the IPPC Strategic Framework 2020–2030, the strategy details the IPPC’s communication objectives, value proposition, target audiences and stakeholders, key messages and channels, methods of monitoring and evaluating impact, and milestones to be achieved. Raising public awareness on how vital plant health is to global food security, the environment and international trade requires a cohesive global road map that communicates more thoughtfully and proactively the need to support the IPPC mission. The IPPC, ratified by 184 contracting parties, makes provisions to achieve this, along with International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs). The convention and standards, once adopted and implemented by parties, are seen to protect plant health and ultimately contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development goals particularly in achieving zero hunger, protecting the environment against plant pests and climate change impact, and providing decent livelihoods by protecting trade and economies from the impact of plant pests. Communication, thus, needs to be strategic and impactful to generate greater and sustainable investments while creating ripples of positive behavior change towards protecting global plant health. With eight communication milestones identified in the strategy, the IPPC community is moving towards more innovative ways of communicating by enhancing digital platforms such as the International Phytosanitary Portal and facilitating greater engagement through social media. IPPC communications is moving from the traditional one-way, top-down process with the establishment of a Community of Practice in communication to allow a more robust and timely knowledge exchange, information sharing and collaboration. These approaches and how to operationalize them are captured in the IPPC communications strategy 2023–2030.
