The Phytosanitary Capacity Evaluation (PCE) is a management tool designed to help a country to identify both strengths and gaps in its existing and planned phytosanitary systems.

The Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF) is a global partnership that helps developing countries to meet international standards and access international markets by tackling SPS gaps, and promoting food safety, animal and plant health.

STDF's Phytosanitary Capacity Evaluation (PCE) Facilitators' project, led by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat aimed to help National Plant Protection Organization (NPPOs) improve their work through more robust needs' assessment and action planning, based on the PCE Tool.

Lois Ransom evaluated this project and reported that the project planning, implementation and outcomes of this project were innovative and well planned, building on lessons learnt. The evaluation also noted that there is a widespread recognition and support for the use of the PCE by the IPPC Community and that the PCE is under resourced and the modules and platform need to be modernized.

The event on the Phytosanitary Capacity Evaluation (PCE) Facilitators - Findings and recommendations of the evaluation of the Phytosanitary Capacity Evaluation Facilitators project is jointly organized by the STDF Secretariat and the IPPC Secretariat.

The event will take place on Tuesday, 30 November at 13:00-14:15 (CET) to share and discuss the findings and recommendations of the project evaluation in order to build on the project's results, including to further support the PCE's use in developing countries.
