Important information on International Year of Plant Health 2020

Posted on Tue, 25 Feb 2020, 11:59

Dear Sir/Madam,

We hope this email finds you well, and you are finding opportunities to organise or participate in plant health events and activities in your country that add to the global momentum we aim to increase during the International Year of Plant Health 2020 through consistent use of key messages and the visual identity. We would be grateful if you could regularly share information on your planned initiatives with the IYPH Secretariat ([email protected]) so that we can help to promote these events as much as possible.

Below are some key links for your consideration. We are counting on your support to share material among your communication networks so we can together highlight the importance of #PlantHealth:

All IYPH graphic files and the logo in various languages are available at the following link:

Please note that the IYPH visual identity is available to use freely, without the need for prior authorization, provided that certain requirements are met in accordance with the FAO guidelines: A summary of the guidelines can be found below. You may download the necessary graphic files at this location: Visual Identity?dl=0&subfolder_nav_tracking=1

Here is a general summary of the guidelines for the use of the IYPH visual identity:

  • the IYPH visual identity may not be used for commercial and/or fundraising purposes;
  • the IYPH visual identity must appear alone and not next to any other logo to avoid suggesting any form of established partnership (which we are happy to discuss, should you be interested);
  • the FAO and/or IPPC logos are not available to use: it is possible to use the three logos only by submitting an official request, which will be evaluated and answered; and
  • the IYPH visual identity should not appear next to any partner’s logos, especially in case of donors; should it be difficult, the absence of any kind of partnership or relationship between the IYPH and any third part logo that may be present on your website and communication material must be made abundantly clear and explicit.

You can also help to raise awareness during the IYPH 2020 by following our social media pages below and sharing posts and material such as the promotional video:

Additional material is being produced, so stay tuned!

Should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to seeing you at CPM-15 in Rome.

Best regards,

IPPC Secretariat
