国际植保公约迈向国际植物健康年

Posted 3 年, 7 月 以前

来自国际植保公约秘书处秘书长夏敬源的消息

尊敬的各位同事,

自我接受联合国粮农组织的任命,担任联合国粮农组织国际植物保护公约秘书处秘书长一职,已经有三个月了。自2015年5月接任以来,我就着眼于国际植保公约的长期规划,同时基于最近对于国际植保公约秘书处的评估报告,对秘书处进行改革。我开展的所有的工作的都是希望带领国际植保公约及其秘书处走向一个更光明的未来。

国际植物保护公约秘书处只有成为一个高效的团队,才能更好的服务于国际植物保护公约以及国际植物检疫措施委员会。因此,秘书处的框架结构和运行机制的改革调整,对于提升秘书处的执行力以及业绩,从而更好的服务于国际植保公约缔约方是十分重要的。对国际植保公约秘书处的评估报告及其宝贵的意见建议是这次秘书处改革的核心内容。万事开头难,改革正当时,秘书处内部的改革已经从开始成立特别工作任务小组开始,比如我们已经建立的资源协调小组。我也已经梳理了几个标准的工作流程来优化秘书处的沟通协调机制。我相信,通过不断的变革优化,秘书处必将在不远的将来变成一个高效、创新、和谐的国际植保公约服务团队。

关于“国际植物健康年”的提议激发了我们大多数人的美好向往,并且已经从一个初步的概念变得有实质性的进展。事实上,“国际植物健康年”是国际植保公约策略规划中最重要的组成部分之一,也就是我所说的国际植保公约迈向国际植物健康年。现阶段,官方发布“国际植物健康年”的具体的细节程序正在有条不紊的推进。作为领导过中国棉花所和中华人民共和国农业部全国农业技术推广服务中心的植物健康方面的专家,我像你们大家一样,被将植物健康作为2020年的世界性的公益主题的提议深深的吸引着。

国际植保公约秘书处对于“国际植物健康年”在2015年第十届国际植物检疫措施委员会上讨论表示赞扬,并且对于推进这项工作的后续规划进行了额外的预算。国际植物健康年的内部沟通协调机制业已建立,国际植保公约将调整建立一个“国际植物健康年”的相关网站,将相关的信息展示给各个层面的人员,同时也已经在感兴趣的联合国粮农组织员工内部召开了一个研讨会。国际植保公约秘书处将进一步的全力支持缔约方和国际植物检疫措施委员会,持续推进2020国际植物健康年。

然而,国际植保公约秘书处的额外预算来源并不充足。我们最终不得不面对资金上的问题。我们的信托资金已经枯竭,并且在开展实质性的工作以前需要得到新的资金支持。如果国际植物检疫机构希望秘书处能够以相对较快的速度推进相关工作,新的资金来源必须得到保证。因此,我诚恳的希望各位都能够积极的调动一切资源来为国际植保公约做出相关的贡献。我们特别成立的资源协调工作小组将非常乐意在后勤和以及所需的探索性调查方面提供帮助。

各位同事,在全球发展所带来的新机遇新挑战下,建立一个高效、创新、和谐的国际植保公约组织,这一直是我的梦想。我非常希望各位能够同我一起去实现这个梦想。让我们携手并进、共同努力,一起见证2020年“国际植物健康年”!

落地生根-国际上大力支持“2020国际植物健康年”

Posted 3 年, 9 月 以前

将2020年定为国际植物健康年的提议受到了国际植物保护组织越来越多的支持和推动。国际植保公约植物检疫措施委员会在最后一次例会上发出的“2020国际植物健康年”的提议,在国际植保公约各个缔约方以及公约秘书处的进一步推动下,受到了来自各方面的广泛赞扬和高度支持。联合国粮农组织大会、欧盟部长级联席会、国际植物检疫措施委员会大会、国际植保公约财政会、在巴西圣保罗召开的“国际植物检疫风险研讨会”、7月在意大利米兰召开的题为“气候变化与食品安全:植物健康、植物育种和种质资源所面临的挑战”的欧盟会议都涉及并积极推进“2020国际植物健康年”。

2015年6月,第39届联合国大会首次公开表示赞扬“2020国际植物健康年”的提议。在大会期间,芬兰表示将正式向联合国粮农总干事提出将2020年定为国际植物健康年。芬兰的提议受到其他来自各大洲的各个发展阶段的联合国粮农组织成员国的强烈而广泛的支持。

2015年6月,“2020国际植物健康年”的提议在欧盟部长级联席会上讨论,并再次受到多个欧盟成员国和欧盟理事会的大力支持。在欧盟拉脱维亚总统的强有力的支持和领导下,“2020国际植物健康年”被作为了一个十分重要的议题进行讨论。

在近期的国际植物检疫措施委员会大会以及公约财政委员会大会上,“2020国际植物健康年”得到了进一步的广泛讨论和深刻谋划。国际植物检疫措施委员会大会决定将在2015年10月的国际植保公约策略规划小组的会上进一步的明确国际植物健康年的具体目标和工作框架。此外,国际植物检疫措施委员会大会通过了建立“2020国际植物健康年”志愿者计划,将争取更多的志愿者加入,来提供人力资源方面的支持。

国际植保公约秘书处在巴西圣保罗2015年6月由巴西社会和国防部召开的“国际植物检疫风险研讨会”首次提出“2020国际植物健康年”的概念。这个提议受到极大的欢迎,并且受到来自巴西工业、学术和研究团体的广泛关注。

2015年7月,在米兰世界博览会的工作框架下,欧盟委员会召开了主题为“气候变化与食品安全:植物健康、植物育种和种质资源所面临的挑战”的会议。国际植保公约秘书处受邀在会上做了题为“气候变化、新的风险和植物病虫害在食品安全上的影响”的主要发言。

国际植保公约秘书处积极主动并鼓励在一系列的区域工作框架、区域国际植保组织年会、区域国际植保组织与有针对性的科学会议之间的技术磋商会上进一步推进“2020国际植物健康年”。
