Based on the STDF Strategy for 2020-2024, the STDF identified Practitioner Groups on priority topics for safe trade as an opportunity to further develop its global partnership and expand its reach and resources.
The STDF P-IMA Practitioner Group aims to support and improve the planning, delivery and dissemination of STDF's work on P-IMA. The STDF Secretariat convenes members of this Group to identify opportunities to promote the use of P-IMA linked to other ongoing/planned work, encourage innovations and synergies to catalyse resources for SPS capacity building needs prioritized in various P-IMA reports, and exchange experiences and learning.
This is expected to result in:
- new collaborative relationships to promote the use of P-IMA to strengthen SPS capacity and promote evidence-based decision making for the benefit of developing countries;
- new information and knowledge products on experiences and learning related to the use of P-IMA to inform SPS related decision making for dissemination on the STDF website and via members; and
- additional resources to promote the use of evidence based SPS planning and decision-making processes.
