Plants are the foundation of life. They provide most of the food we eat and the oxygen we breathe. Yet, they are under constant and increasing attack by pests and other pathogens. The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2020 the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH) to increase the awareness of the public and decision makers about the importance of healthy plants towards global issues such as food security, safe trade facilitation and environmental protection. The presentation will focus on the relation between plant health and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, along with the IYPH key messages and plans by FAO and the Secretariat of the International Plant Protection Convention.
