International Year of Plant Health: EFSA launches new website

To mark the International Year of Plant Health, EFSA has launched a dedicated website highlighting the work it is doing with its partners to combat plant pests and protect Europe’s crops, parks and gardens.The website will be updated throughout the year with news and information on activities aimed at raising awareness about plant health in Europe and beyond, contributing to the efforts lead by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). EFSA’s dedicated microsite allows users to delve into several different topics and explore its work such as  horizon scanning, the work EFSA does to track of emerging pests; pest surveillance, for which EFSA provides a toolkit that includes pest survey cards, survey guidelines, and statistical tools; the 20 priority pests identified by the European Commission; the high-risk plants whose entry into the EU is prohibited; as well as pest risk assessments and pest categorisations.
