International Plant Protection Convention - IPPC

The IPPC allows countries to analyze risks to their national plant resources and to use science-based measures to safeguard their cultivated and wild plants. By protecting plant resources from pests and diseases, the IPPC helps:

  • protect farmers from economically devastating pest and disease outbreaks;
  • protect the environment from loss of species diversity;
  • protect ecosystems from loss of viability and function as a result of pest invasions;
  • protect industries and consumers from the costs of pest control or eradication.
