The IPPC Secretariat presents the IYPH Webinar Series: paving the path to the International Plant Health Conference 2022. The International Steering Committee (ISC) of the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH) recommended at their 14th meeting that the first International Plant Health Conference (IPHC) should take place in the week of 9 to 13 May 2022, since the COVID-19 pandemic cause its cancellation in 2021. The IYPH Webinar Series aims at building a path leading to the IPHC in 2022 together with the IPPC community, aligning with the IPPC Strategic Framework 2020 – 2030, recently adopted by the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM).
This series of virtual events wish to engage the international community on the importance of plant health after the IYPH comes to an end and to support the potential declaration of the International Day of Plant Health on 12 May each year by the United Nations General Assembly at the end of 2021.
The first event of the IYPH Webinar Series is going to take place virtually on 29 June 2021 on the link between food systems and plant health, as an Independent Dialogue of the United Nations Food Systems Summit. This topic aligns with the IPPC Strategic Framework 2020 – 2030 and its Development Agenda, thus providing some initial inputs towards its implementation.
