STDF Rolling out Systems Approach Globally


Rolling out Systems Approach Globally: Sharing tools for enhanced application of Systems Approach and market negotiation on plant pest risk (MTF/INT/336/STF)

Budget: USD 771.186 Start: 1 July 2018 End: 30 June 2021

The Rolling out Systems Approach Globally project is funded by the Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF) and implemented by the IPPC Secretariat, in collaboration with the Centre for Environmental Policy, Imperial College London (ICL). The IPPC Capacity Development and Implementation Committee (IC) serves as the project steering committee.

The anticipated impact of the project is increased opportunities for export trade in plant products by developing countries through better capacity to deal with phytosanitary issues during market access negotiations and more options for managing pest risk. The greater opportunities will be based on the wider inclusion of more effective and efficient options for managing the pest risk, as estimated by the importing country NPPO, and for resolving issues when trade is disrupted. This will be achieved by enhancing competency and confidence in applying Systems Approach through the use of innovative decision support tools, Beyond Compliance tools (Tools), which will be applied to real, priority trade cases. The use of these tools will directly support deeper understanding of ISPM 14 The use of integrated measures in a systems approach for pest risk management by those participating.

There are three expected outputs of the project:

  • Practical tools that demonstrate predicted efficacy of alternative plant health risks management measures produced for promising trade cases from developing countries;
  • Systems Approach tools more broadly accessible, in particular to developing countries; and
  • Countries assisted in market access negotiations for plant products.

The project follows three parallel tracks to deliver its objectives. Please click on the below links to learn more.
