The IPPC Implementation and Review Support System (IRSS) invites you to an interactive webinar on IRSS’s journey, its milestones and impact on the plant health sector.
All are very welcome to join, whether you are an expert who has been involved with IRSS in the past or if you’re new to the System and have not heard it mentioned before. During the webinar, key speakers will also share the wealth of studies, topics and materials currently available as well as chart a new pathway for a better and more sustainable IRSS that will benefit the IPPC community, national and regional plant protection organizations, governance bodies, contracting parties to the IPPC, and beyond.
The webinar will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation into French, Russian and Arabic.
The European Union provided funding for the IRSS.
