IITA launches IYPH website
By now, we know that 2020 is the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). Throughout the year, partners and stakeholders in agriculture shall increase awareness among the public and policymakers on the importance of healthy plants and the necessity to protect them in order to reduce hunger, malnutrition and poverty.
To create more awareness, IITA has developed a website through which to disseminate accurate plant health information.
According to Kathy Lopez, IITA head of communication, “this website will house information on plant health breakthroughs developed by IITA and partners. Our readers should look out for informative videos, blogs posts, graphics and news concerning plant health.”
