The impact of global change on the emergence of plant diseases and pests in Europe

23/04/2018 to 24/04/2018
Paris, France

France, as a geographical crossroads, is faced with the establishment of plant pests and diseases from neighbouring countries, especially those to the north, but also those from overseas, which find climatic conditions in metropolitan France favourable to their rapid development. The same phenomenon can now be seen on the European level with, for example, the establishment in the Mediterranean of tropical diseases. 

The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES), in collaboration with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO, organized this conference aims to bring together researchers, public decision-makers and stakeholders in the environmental and agricultural production fields, to take stock of the subject and bring forth new ideas on the assessment and management of phytosanitary risks in response to the challenges of the coming years.
