Global Plant Health Assessment
The Global Plant Health Assessment (GPHA) aims to provide a first-time ever overall assessment of plant health in the natural and human-made ecosystems of the world. Plant health is assessed through the functions that plants ensure in ecosystems: "ecosystem services". The GPHA will assess plant health on the basis of published, science‐ and fact‐based, expert evaluations.
The Assessment has been sanctioned by the Executive Committee of the International Society for Plant Pathology (ISPP) in November 2019, so that this work would be conducted under its aegis. The efforts underpinning the Global Plant Health Assessment are therefore not institutional.
The International Workshop on the Global Plant Health Assessment will be held in Toulouse, France, on October 5-8, 2021, at TSE (Toulouse School of Economics; https://www.tse-fr.eu/)
