The CPM Bureau meeting was held around the 12th Session of the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM-12) from 3-4 April & 11 April 2017 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. The meeting was chaired by Lois RANSOM, CMP Chair, opened by Jingyuan XIA, IPPC Secretary, and attended by Kyu-Ock YIM (Asia), Corné VAN ALPHEN (Europe), Francisco Javier TRUJILLO ARRIAGA (Latin America and Caribbean), Kamal El Din Abdelmahmoud Amein BAKR (Near East) and Marie-Claude FOREST (North America), as well as Core Team Members of the IPPC Secretariat, including Craig FEDCHOCK, Brent LARSON, Orlando SOSA, Dorota BUZON, and Marko BENOVIC.
Prior CPM-12, the Bureau meeting briefly reviewed 2016 IPPC Secretariat’s reports on core activities, financial performance, and resource mobilization, as well as 2017 IPPC Secretariat’s Work Plan and Budget (WPB). The main discussion focused on the organizational arrangements for the CPM-12, including special topic session, side sessions, and some hot topics, such as IPPC Strategic Framework for 2020-2030, sustainable funding mechanism for the IPPC Work Programme, establishment of a new oversight body for Implementation and Capacity Development (IC), IYPH 2020, Sea Container, adoption of new ISPMs, and celebration of the IPPC 65th Anniversary during the CPM-12.
After CPM-12, the Bureau meeting was dedicated to a discussion on issues arising from the CPM-12 requiring future Bureau actions, including resource impact of CPM-12 decisions and prioritization, calendar of upcoming Bureau meetings in 2017, and pre-planning for the Strategic Planning Group in October 2017 and the CPM-13 in 2018.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
