Strengthening capacities of the national phytosanitary control services in 4 Eastern European countries

Minsk, Belarus, 08/09/2016 - 08/09/2016

Inception Workshop for the Regional Project TCP/RER/3503

In order to improve the effectiveness of National Plant Protection Organizations of the countries addressed in this project namely, Armenia, Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine, and increase their potential to realize the benefits of safe trade, support, the need for capacity-building of plant protection infrastructures was identified as most urgent.

In all countries mentioned above, lack of knowledge of modern plant protection methods and phytosanitary measures appear to be very serious constraints for the effectiveness of phytosanitary control services. Furthermore, the lack of capacity does not allow the countries to comply with international phytosanitary obligations under the World Trade Organization Agreement on the application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures and the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).

Considering the above and in order to improve the situation and develop collaboration among phytosanitary control services, the governments of four Eastern European countries requested FAO to provide technical assistance in strengthening capacities of the national phytosanitary control services.

The project partners will come together to discuss project-related knowledge and review the project work plan.

An inception workshop will be organized with executing partner involving identified representatives of the major institutional stakeholders at national level, private sector, and civil society organization representatives acting in the area of work.
The purpose of the inception workshop is to introduce the project, to gather new information for the project implementation, consolidate a work plan and ensure support during implementation of the project. The inception workshop will closely engage policy-makers, experts, extension officers relevant to the project, so that involvement of key stakeholders is ensured from the beginning of the project. The inception workshop will present the awareness information for current countries situation, project baseline, project components, expected outputs and outcomes.
