1 December 2020, 15:00-16:00 (CET)

Speakers: Stephen Parnell, University of Salford, UK; Ignazio Graziosi, Alpha Unit, EFSA

n the context of the new plant health Regulation (EU) 2016/2031, EU Member States are required to perform annual or multi-annual surveys of regulated pests. To support Member States in their surveillance activities, EFSA has developed a Toolkit for plant pest surveillance, which addresses survey preparation and design. This webinar will focus on the design of pest surveys following an outbreak.

The webinar will guide participants through the process of designing delimiting and buffer zone surveys in a statistically sound and risk-based framework.
