Compendium on the Plant Health research priorities for the Mediterranean region

As a contribution of Euphresco to the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH 2020), a ‘Compendium on the Plant Health research priorities for the Mediterranean region’ has recently been published by Euphresco and CIHEAM and is freely available from the Internet:


This Compendium results from the collaboration of experts from the Mediterranean region and the following organizations: the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), the Euphresco network for phytosanitary research coordination and funding (Euphresco), the Arab Society for Plant Protection (ASPP), the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the Mediterranean Phytopathological Union (MPU) and the Near East Plant Protection Organization (NEPPO). The Compendium summarizes the results of a survey on plant health research priorities organised among NPPOs and research organizations. Information on the most threatening pests, as well as on the research priorities and needs for the Mediterranean region are presented.
