    Policy brief
    Improving implementation of the systems approach for pest risk management in Southern Africa

    National Plant Protection Organisations (NPPOs) play a critical role in managing risks related to the introduction and spread of pests while permitting the smooth flow of trade. The Systems Approach (SA) is increasingly being adopted as an alternative to single measures to meet the appropriate level of phytosanitary protection of an importing country. SA is a pest risk management option that integrates different measures, at least two of which act independently, with cumulative effect (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures ISPM 14). Each of these measures reinforces the effectiveness of the system and because they act independently if one fails, the system can continue. Correct application of the SA helps countries prevent the introduction of invasive species and protect crops and biodiversity while promoting trade safe. This policy brief has been developed to contribute towards improved understanding and implementation of the SA by NPPOs. It describes the SA and resources that support its implementation; and identifies gaps in its implementation. Useful recommendations are presented including the inclusion of relevant public and private sector stakeholders to facilitate the implementation of the SA, for financial support, and for capacity building of different players along the production chain.

    Project
    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.

    Africa Phytosanitary Programme 2024
    Also available in:

    In Africa, the estimated crop damage by pests ranges from 30-60 percent or USD 65.5 billion annually. By building the resilience of their phytosanitary systems, countries can prevent the entry or spread of pests in their territories.This brochure describes the Africa Phytosanitary Programme (APP), an initiative through which the IPPC Secretariat is supporting countries in Africa, through their national plant protection organizations (NPPOs) to use digital tools to strengthen their phytosanitary capacity to monitor, detect, respond, and prevent plant pests, particularly pests affecting agricultural commodities of trade and economic significance. The IPPC is working in collaboration with the African Union Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Blue Economy, and Sustainable Environment. The pilot phase of APP is underway, involving 11 African countries, and a vision to support more countries in five years. The brochure gives an overview of the project and an update on the project's progress.
