Roll-out of ISPM 15 in developing and least developed countries
The project aimed to promote understanding and roll out of ISPM 15 (Guidelines for regulating wood packaging material) among developing and least developed countries. It focused on building their capacity to set up adequate infrastructure and systems to roll out ISPM 15, protect natural resources, and decrease the movement of pests that are harmful to plants and, in turn, increase market access for exports.
A results story on the project is available here.
Training material from the workshop could be shared with NPPOs worldwide, alongside follow-up training. To support additional challenges faced by countries in rolling out ISPM 15 due to specific local circumstances, tailor-made capacity building activities to apply knowledge on the ground would be useful.
