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.
