The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat is implementing a Global Project entitled “Strengthening the Capacity of Developing Contracting Parties to Implement the IPPC and its Standards under the FAO-China South-South Cooperation Programme” (GCP/INT/291/CPR). Within this project, two IPPC Virtual Technical Workshops on Phytosanitary Measures have been scheduled for developing Contracting Parties.
The first IPPC virtual technical workshop was successfully organized in October 2021 with the active participation of over 50 attendees from more than 20 Contracting Parties in all five FAO regions, including Africa, Asia and Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America, and Near East and North Africa.
The second IPPC virtual technical workshop is scheduled on 21-25 February 2022, with an expected 50-60 participants from developing Contracting Parties and will be held with interpretation in Chinese, English and French.
