International Year of Plant Health 2020 -2021 (IYPH 2020)
The United Nations General Assembly declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). The year aims to raise global awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment, and boost economic development. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, many activities had to be postponed. Therefore, the IYPH has been extended until summer 2021.
