The Global Plant Health Assessment (GPHA)
The Global Plant Health Assessment (GPHA) aims to provide a first-time ever overall assessment of plant health in the natural and human-made ecosystems of the world. Plant health is assessed through the functions that plants ensure in ecosystems: "ecosystem services". The GPHA will assess plant health on the basis of published, science‐ and fact‐based, expert evaluations.
THE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP+CONFERENCE ON THE GLOBAL PLANT ASSESSMENT
For the past several months, an International Workshop+Conference on the Global Plant Assessment has been planned. The event will include three days of closed-session workshop on the 26 reports that are being assembled on the various Plant-Systems across the world.
It will be followed by a Conference where plant health will be discussed using a series of cross-cutting, over-arching questions. The Conference will be open to the public (the entire ISPP community and beyond) and will include formal lectures and expert-driven panel discussions with the audience. Both components will be conducted in a hybrid way for physically attending and remotely connected participants.
The Workshop will take place on 5-7 October 2021, and the public conference will be held on 8 October 2021.
The Workshop is sponsored by the OECD Co-operative Research Programme: Sustainable Agricultural and Food Systems; and by INRAE: the Department of Plant Health and Environment, the INRAE GloFoodS Metaprogramme (Transitions for Global Food Security), and the INRAE AAFCC Metaprogramme (Adaptation of Agriculture and Forest to Climate Change).
