    The Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) coordinates and supports plant protection activities of its Members in Asia and the Pacific, with emphasis on developing regional standards for phytosanitary measures (RSPMs), contributing to the development of international standards for phytosanitary measures (ISPMs), and promoting information exchange among Members and other countries in the region. It also plays a leadership role in supporting the implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and pesticide management programmes at regional and national levels. Focus is given to the capacity development among Members. This report reviews APPPC’s activities in the past biennium (2020-2021) and provides updates on various plant protection projects in the region. It also addresses current challenges and opportunities, taking into account the incursion and spread of Fall Armyworm (FAW) and Desert Locust (DL).
