Plant Health: Horizon Scanning Dashboard

This interactive dashboard provides access to the latest and past results of EFSA’s horizon scanning activities for plant pests that may pose a threat to European Union territory.

The tool has three sections: 

  • Emerging pests: visualisation on a world map of non-regulated pests that have been detected and are posing new threats (e.g. being found in new areas of invasion, on new hosts, etc.);
  • Priority pests: amount of traffic (in terms of number of items retrieved) for 20 pests that are regulated in the EU as ‘priority pests’ and therefore receive maximum attention from Member States (through public information campaigns to the public, annual surveys, contingency plans, simulation exercises, and action plans for their eradication);
  • Newsletter Search Engine: search all items included in any published newsletter by selecting pest name, family, level of regulation and monitoring score (called ‘PeMoScoring’).

The dashboard is regularly updated following publication of each monthly newsletter.

If you have any question about the tool, please contact plants [at] (plants[at]efsa[dot]europa[dot]eu).
