The Pest Preparedness pathway
PlantwisePlus strengthens detection and response to pest outbreaks. The programme supports countries with more consistent and coordinated processes to prevent, detect, identify and respond to plant health problems.
The pest preparedness pathway addresses the need for a more coordinated rapid response at regional, national and local levels to pest outbreaks. The prioritization element will also identify key pests for which to develop, test and promote biological control options.
Pest threat prioritization
Working with our partners on the ground to develop a solid evidence base on the impacts of plant pests. This supports pest risk assessments.
Early-warning and management
A better evidence base wil enable enhanced pest surveillance. This feeds into early-warning systems and integrated pest management plans.
Coordinated pest preparedness
Pest prioritization and risk assessment will inform a coordinated rapid response at regional, national, and local level. Plus, introduce relevant innovations that strengthen response systems.
