2020 IPPC Regional Workshop


The IPPC Regional Workshops have proved to be an efficient platform for the cooperation among Contracting Parties (CPs) to the IPPC for the harmonization of phytosanitary measures, building sound national phytosanitary systems through the information exchange and regionally focused implementation and capacity development activities. This allows CPs to address challenges faced by national plant protection organizations (NPPOs) in the region.

Due to COVID-19 global crisis, the IPPC Secretariat encouraged regions to organize virtually the 2020 IPPC Regional Workshops, taking into account the still worrying global situation and the different evolutions of the health situation in different countries, the travel restrictions, constraints related to social distancing and the probable quarantine of travellers.

For this year 2020, the IPPC Regional Workshops will give special importance to raise awareness of regional plant health issues and highlight regional ongoing or future initiatives to leave a lasting impact of the International Year on Plant Health (IYPH) beyond 2020.
