CPM Special Topic or Scientific Sessions

Each year, the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures holds a "Special Topics" or "Scientific Session" to consider emerging issues, such as new technologies or new pest threats. Past scientific sessions have addressed issues such as the potential impact of climate change on pest spread, food aid as a pathway for the transboundary movement of pests, aquatic plants as pests, and flaws in the current system for preventing pest spread.

All presentations and papers can be found under the specific directories for each year.
