Description of activity:

As part of the FAO foresight initiative, the Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS) prepared the questionnaire - Emerging Issues in Plant Health that was sent to all contracting parties participating in the 2016 IPPC Regional Workshops. The questionnaire was also sent to all regional plant protection organizations (RPPOs). The questionnaire asked participating contracting parties and RPPOs to list the five most important emerging issues related to plant health in the next two to five years and provide short explanations for each issue. The information gained from the questionnaire responses will help the IPPC Secretariat, RPPOs and the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) to understand national and regional emerging issues and trends between geographic areas.
