    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 mandate of the IPPC is to protect the plant resources of the world from pests through the promotion of standardized, science-based phytosanitary measures. Ensuring that these measures are implemented in a coordinated fashion facilitates trade and helps avoid disputes between countries. A total of 130 developing countries are members of the IPPC, out of 180 members. These developing countries often lack the technical capacity to implement the Convention and the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs). This project was designed to support them to implement the Convention and its standards by providing members from these countries with capacity-development guides and training, and by facilitating their participation at meetings and conferences and in the development and drafting of standards.

    Enhancing Protection of Plant Resources from Pests in Developing Countries - GCP/GLO/877/EC 2023

    Due to rapid globalization, international travel and trade are greater than ever before, and as people and commodities move around the world, organisms that present risks to plants travel with them. The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is an international plant health agreement, which aims to protect cultivated and wild plants by preventing the introduction and spread of pests. Of the 184 IPPC contracting parties, 130 are from developing countries, and there is an increasing demand for technical assistance to improve their capacity to establish and maintain efficient plant protection institutions and framework. Against this background, the European Union funded Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS) project has been operating, since 2012, as the tool used by the IPPC to identify contracting parties’ challenges and opportunities for the implementation of the Convention and International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs). This project was implemented to build on the results delivered in the first and second project cycles of the IRSS; and to improve contracting parties’ implementation of the IPPC, ISPMs and Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) recommendations.
