    The world’s leading authorities on plant health came together for the world’s first-ever International Plant Health Conference (IPHC), co-organized by FAO, the Secretariat of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) of the United Kingdom. More than 500 policymakers, academics and experts from more than 74 countries convened on 21-23 September at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London to address current and future plant health challenges, including food security, the impacts of climate change, environmental protection, facilitating safe trade, and new pest and disease pathways, such as e-commerce. Protecting plant health is critical in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Healthy plants contribute to achieving food security for all (SDG 2 Zero Hunger) and promote responsible food consumption and production (SDG 12). Protecting plants helps protect biodiversity and the environment from the impact of plant pests (SDG 13 and 15), and facilitates safe trade, in turn providing decent job opportunities and boosting economic growth (SDG 8). More than 120 speakers across 20 sessions and delegates shared knowledge and discussed global scientific, technical and regulatory issues, alongside actions to tackle these existential threats to our society, economy and environment. More than 1350 viewers followed the conference via webcast during different sessions. A total of 55 research posters were presented, including 30 from early career researchers. The International Plant Health Conference supports the delivery of the IPPC Strategic Framework 2020-2030.
