Strengthening information systems for pest surveillance and reporting in Asia Pacific

This project aims to develop a regionally harmonised pest information framework. The project will demonstrate that a harmonised pest information framework can be developed, based on streamlined data collection, internationally recognised data standards, and simple protocols for exchanging data with existing, national systems.

A series of case studies, including surveillance to support market access proposals and assist early detection of high priority quarantine pests, will be used to demonstrate that such a regional framework can enable more cost-effective collection of pest records, more robust management of pest data, and more credible and timely reporting of pest status.
