List of Implementation and Capacity Development Topics

IPPC guides and training materials include guides, training kits, e-Learning courses, videos, curricula and other implementation and capacity development technical resources that are developed under the oversight of the Implementation and Capacity Development Committee (IC).

Implementation and capacity development topics generally arise from submissions in response to the biennial Call for Topics: Standards and Implementation. However, topic proposals may also arise from the need to revise or modernize existing IPPC guides and training materials or from projects that receive technical support from the IPPC Secretariat. The IC may review the Implementation and Capacity Development (ICD) list of topics, including the addition, deletion, splitting or combining of topics and makes recommendations to the CPM.

The implementation topics on this List of Implementation and Capacity Development (ICD) Topics have been adopted by the CPM.

The priority level of the topics is determined by the IC and may be adjusted as requested by the IC. Additional information in this database is prepared and added by the IPPC Secretariat.



Priority
Priority 1 to 4 (with 1 being of high priority and 4 being of low priority)
Priority X is used to identify topics that are no longer considered relevant or useful and which the IC recommends for deletion from the ICD LOT

Strategic Objectives of IPPC Strategic Framework 2020-2030
A: Enhance global food security and increase sustainable agricultural productivity
