Results from this Action will be of interest to a wide range of end-users:
- The results will be directly relevant and applicable to the EU Standing Committee on Plant Health in relation to the continuing development and refinement of Directive 2000/29/EC.
- Regional Plant Protection Organisations (contributors to the Action reside in EPPO, IAPSC, NAPPO and PPPO regions of the world) globally will also benefit. In particular, several members of the EPPO Forest Quarantine Panel will be involved in this COST Action.
- In the wider context of forest and woodland protection from invasive pests and, therefore, in downstream benefits of maintaining and improving ecosystem health, end-users also include forest and woodland managers, wood-processing industries and the wider public for amenity and human health benefits.
