Call from ISPP: A code of ethics for plant health emergencies

The outbreaks of emergent plant diseases or insect pests are significantly increasing at an alarming rate due to climate change, global trade and other reasons. These plant health emergent problems are serious threats to global food security in this 21st century. The role of plant pathologist to address any plant health emergency is paramount. It enables analyses that allow the fullest possible understanding of the emergency and guide a response plan to the outbreak.
There is a lack of clarity in the plant pathology community on a number of ethical issues related to plant health emergencies. The International Society for Plant Pathology (ISPP) is developing and publicising a code of ethics to help promote high standards of behaviour and practice whenever we face new plant disease outbreaks.
The code has the following aims:

  • to foster ethical conduct
  • to support communication and collaboration
  • to ensure that decisions are based on the best available evidence

Any comments or feedback related to the Code of Ethics can be sent to PPcode@isppweb.org
