The development and growth of many countries depends on the performance of their agricultural economies, and this, in turn, is directly related to the quality of their NPPOs. Experience has shown that the effectiveness of the national plant protection organizations improves when their operations are based on scientific principles and technical independence. Similarly, these official services are strengthened thanks to the active participation and investment of both the public and the private sectors. In an effort to contribute to the strengthening of the national plant protection organizations, the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) has prepared the Performance, Vision and Strategy (PVS) Tool, which is designed to help NPPOs to gauge their current level of performance, set priorities and carry out strategic planning. This tool can also help NPPOs form a shared vision with the private sector with a view to fulfilling their obligations and taking advantage of new opportunities.
