Closing Ceremony of the International Year of Plant Health - 1 July 2021

Virtual - , 01/07/2021 -

At its eighth meeting, the IYPH ISC recommended that the IYPH 2020 Closing Ceremony be held on 1 July 2021 in conjunction with the closure of the first International Plant Health Conference (IPHC) in Helsinki, hosted by the Government of Finland. This was partially revised by the IYPH ISC at its fourteenth meeting, which further postponed the IPHC to 12 May 2022, while requiring that the IYPH Closing Ceremony still be held on 1 July 2021.

The main objectives of the IYPH Closing Ceremony are to:

(i)  present the outcomes of key IYPH initiatives undertaken in 2020 and the first half of 2021;

(ii) highlight the IYPH achievements and trigger further reflections on the status of plant health around the world; and

(iii) stress the importance of plant health to achieve the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
