External Cooperation

The IPPC recognizes the importance of maintaining strong links with organizations that share common interests. These relationships can range from informal, flexible arrangements to highly defined relationships.

The IPPC Secretariat has strong relationships with all Regional Plant Protection Organizations (RPPOs) in facilitating contracting parties to implement the IPPC.

The IPPC Secretariat also cooperates with many other organizations and those which have an established relationship are listed below.

Those organizations not listed below who wish to establish such a relationship with the IPPC Secretariat should submit a written request to the IPPC Secretariat (ippc@fao.org). In your request please outline the areas of cooperation you think would be beneficial and provide some background documentation on your organization (Charter, Terms of Reference, website etc.). This request will be submitted to the CPM Bureau for consideration with input from the IPPC Secretariat, paying special attention to the resources available to the IPPC Secretariat to engage in this cooperative effort.

Each organization that the IPPC has a relationship with is invited to create a web page describing their organization, providing a contact point and a link to their organization's website as well the contact point can post relevant documents on this webpage. Those organizations that are listed above may contact the IPPC Secretariat (IPPC@fao.org) to create such a web page if they wish.
