Posters presented at the international Symposium 'Plant Health without borders' 2024



Compilation of posters presented during the knowledge forum at the international Symposium 'Plant Health without borders' organized by the Belgian Presidency for the 2024 International Day of Plant Health. 

Using the momentum of the International Day of Plant Health, the Belgian Presidency emphasized the importance of collaboration in plant health at all levels - national, regional, and international. Plants are the basis for life on earth and, as such, plant health is considered as a public good, and its protection is more than justified. Today, due to global warming and human activities such as trade and travel, plants are under severe pressure. Invasive pest species are one of the main drivers of biodiversity loss and threaten the delicate balance of life that sustains our planet. Plant pests can cause catastrophic economic and ecological damage. All stakeholders - policy makers, the agricultural sector, researchers and the general public - share the responsibility to take up the challenge to tackle this threat.
