The body charged with keeping global trade in plants and plant products safe has adopted several new phytosanitary standards aimed at preventing destructive agricultural and environmental pests from jumping borders and spreading internationally.

The standardized norms developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) cover a range of strategies and techniques used to prevent the introduction and spread of plant diseases and pests to new environments, thereby avoiding their often-devastating impacts on biodiversity, food security and trade.

Lois Ransom, Chairperson of the Commission for Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), the IPPC's governing body, explains the significance of the convention and how it prevent pest diseases from spreading through global trade.
