Register now: conference on global change and the spread of plant pests

Registration is open for a major scientific conference on the role of global change in the emergence of plant diseases and pests in Europe.

The conference – co-organised by EFSA, the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) and the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) – will take place in Paris from 23-24 April 2018.

It will bring together researchers, public decision-makers and stakeholders to discuss how best to assess and manage phytosanitary risks arising from global change.

The concept of “global change” goes beyond global warming and includes other planet-wide phenomena caused by human activities such as the intensification of trade and modifications in production and consumer systems.
