CPM-18 Side session on E-commerce

16 April 2024 | FAO Headquarters, Rome, Italy

E-commerce has transformed the way goods are bought and sold and moved in international trade, presenting economic opportunities and significant challenges for plant protection and safe trade of plants and plant products. This side session focuses on the pest risk posed by e-commerce, as well as best practices and country case studies, for mitigating this risk. It also offers an opportunity for countries share their experiences in addressing some of the plant-health related challenges brought about by the rapid expansion of e-commerce and the ever-changing landscape of digital technologies. The discussion emphasizes the importance of collaboration among all e-commerce stakeholders and highlights two key resources developed by the IPPC, an IPPC guide to e-commerce and an infographic video.
