EU council on plant health & SPS issues

At the 3397th Council meeting Agriculture and Fisheries held in Luxembourg on 16 June 2015, the Presidency briefed the Council on the International Year of Plant Health 2020. At the ninth session of the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM-9) of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) it was proposed to examine the possibility of declaring an International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). A study concluded that an IYPH would be possible at the earliest in the year 2020. Several member states and the Commission agreed with the Presidency that the IYPH would have a substantial impact on public and political awareness of plant health. This would notably highlight the growing threat of new plant pests emerging, spreading or becoming more damaging as a consequence of climate change and increased movement of goods and people.
