17-20 January 2012
The workshop was organized by the REU Plant Production and Protection Officer in close collaboration with IPPC Secretariat and FAOR in the Republic of Armenia. Senior experts from the National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPO) from 12 countries, mainly representing plant quarantine services, participated in the workshopThe main objectives of the event were:
- to provide reviewers of the IPPC standard setting team with feedback from contracting parties to the IPPC on ISPM 6, 4 and 8. These standards are currently up for review;
- to analyze responses from contracting parties on the level of implementation of ISPM 6 and identify main challenges for its implementation. This data will provide the IPPC capacity building team with guidance on how best to approach country surveillance capacity building in this area. The data will be shared with RPPOs to assist them in the same regard.
The data from the workshop will be further analyzed by a global expert group on pest surveillance in a workshop to be hosted later in 2012 by the APPPC. The expert group will identify concrete actions to be followed up on through projects including development of additional guidance such as through manuals, training materials. It is expected that at least 1 training course will be developed in this follow up initiative.
