The 2022 Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Priority Setting Workshop will continue our important collaborative work to establish international MRLs and break down trade barriers for specialty crops. The overall goal is to develop a list of top pest management priorities for the region. We will use this opportunity to look for plant protection products for crops/pesticides previously identified as priorities for countries in the region participating in mitigation projects.
To start the priority setting process, we held an inception workshop to explain the purpose and entire priority setting process on May 17, 2022.
If you missed the inception workshop, you can view the recording on our YouTube channel or in the video players here. You can also access presentations from the workshop within the agenda below.
