Implementation & Capacity Development

Contracting parties to the IPPC agree to promote the provision of technical assistance to other contracting parties with the objective of facilitating the implementation of the Convention. In particular, the Convention encourages support to developing countries in order to improve the effectiveness of their National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs) and increase the potential for them to realize the benefits of safe trade. The Convention also encourages participation in regional plant protection organizations as the basis for cooperation in achieving the aims of the IPPC at the regional level.

The Implementation and Capacity Development Committee (IC) provides oversight to ICD activities delivered by the Implementation and Facilitation Unit (IFU) of the IPPC Secretariat.

In addition, the IFU supports FAO technical cooperation programmes (TCP) and phytosanitary projects through:

  • Enhancing capacity and strengthening plant protection infrastructures of NPPOs
  • Promoting dispute avoidance and
  • Assisting contracting parties to update their plant health legislation
