Side Session 1 - Plant Health and Capacity Development

Iran Room (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

The 5th Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM-5) approved the IPPC national phytosanitary capacity development strategy in 2010. The strategy describes the components of a global framework in which stakeholders at national, regional and international level, each have a role to play in building the capacity of the National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs). However, it recognizes that the NPPOs should be supported by a number of entities if these national institutions are to be strengthened.

As 2019 is the IPPC Thematic Year of Plant Health and Capacity Development, the IPPC Secretariat plans to promote the annual theme through several activities highlighting the importance of collaboration with partner organizations. This side session is supported by the IPPC Implementation and Capacity Development Committee (IC) and aimed to raise awareness on capacity development approaches in the IPPC community. We have the following invited speakers to showcase how we are using education, guides and training in developing capacity.

IPPC contracting parties and stakeholders are expected to contribute to the discussions on experiences in different approaches of capacity development for plant health.
