Mauritius steps up awareness on Plant Biosecurity

Published

on

Mauritius is currently hosting a workshop on Plant Biosecurity Awareness to enlist the collaboration of stakeholders concerned for a coordinated control and management of transboundary pests and diseases of plants and animals.

The event brings together plant protection authorities, border control agencies, specialists in plant health and testing laboratories, farmers, and other relevant stakeholders (airlines, shipping lines, importers, exporters, etc).

According to Mauritian authorities, all the frontline workers having direct contact with plants and animals, need to be fully aware of the biosecurity threats, risks and precautions to be taken to prevent the spread of exotic animals, including ornamental fish.

The workshop is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Agro-Industry and Food Security, the National Plant Protection Office and Food Security and the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) under the Support towards operationalisation of the SADC Regional Agricultural Policy (STOSAR).
