To do so in a structured way, the IC agreed upon a Strategy and Process on how the IC reviews and analyses Implementation and capacity Development projects.

To implement this strategy and process, the IPPC Secretariat is soliciting information regarding ongoing Phytosanitary projects at national, regional and global level.

Deadline:  Nominations and Submissions are due 25 March 2021

Call for software applications to help plant pest surveillance activities

The IPPC Secretariat is calling for:

  • Software applications freely available online including mobile applications to help plant pest surveillance activities

In 2018 Call for Topics: Standards and Implementation, a new topic proposal ‘Smartphone APP to monitor Xylella fastidiosa for all relevant stakeholders and a mapping system to follow up on its global distribution’ (2018-023) was submitted which proposed development of a surveillance tool. The Task Force on Topics recommended this topic should be addressed by collecting these type of tools from the IPPC Community and posting them as contributed resources on the IPP and the CPM-14 (2019) adopted this recommendation. The Implementation and Capacity Development Committee (IC) discussed this topic in the IC VM03 meeting in 2020 and agreed to issue the call focusing on software applications related to pest monitoring, and expand the scope to include all plant pests. Collected software applications will be considered under the Global Plant Health Surveillance programme.

Deadline: Submissions are due 31 May 2021.
