  • PI Richard Baker (FERA, UK)
  • Imperial College London Team
  • John Mumford, Megan Quinlan, John Holt, Adrian

What is a Pratique?
Enhancements of Pest Risk Analysis Techniques
  • Organised around the existing PRA scheme
    developed by EPPO
  • European and Mediterranean Plant Protection
    Organisation (EPPO, 1997) working with revision
    from 2007
  • Three year project (March 2008 - 2011)
  • 4.13 million (510 person months)
  • Funded by the European Union under FP 7 Building
    the European research area of knowledge for
  • 15 Partners
  • 11 partners (NPPOs and universities) from 9
    European countries, plus subcontracts to Russian
    and Chinese institutions
  • Partners from Australia and New Zealand, plus
    active observers from Canada and the United
    States of America.
  • Two international organisations as partners (EPPO
    and CABI Switzerland Centre)

EU 7th Framework Call Text (i)
  • Development of more efficient risk analysis
    techniques for pests and pathogens of
    phytosanitary concern
  • This project will
  • develop the science and provision of pest risk
  • explore the potential for new techniques
  • refine existing tools and management approaches
  • that can be applied to enhance existing PRA

EU 7th Framework Call Text (ii)
  • Key work will focus on risk assessment issues and
    will include
  • identifying and integrating key national and
    international datasets
  • exploring new techniques and refining existing
  • - especially validation of techniques that
    assess economic, environmental or social
  • developing system approaches for pest risk
    management to analyse and enhance the
    effectiveness of Plant Health policy
  • developing novel and sustainable pest management
    strategies with integrated technical support for
    policy development in the case of emergency
    situations/pest outbreaks, especially those pests
    that are difficult to control.

EU 7th Framework Call Text (iii)
  • Expected impact
  • The project will develop sustainable, integrated
    plant health risk analysis and management
  • Effective policy making and decision making by
    governments aimed at predicting and managing
    plant health risks, will be enhanced through the
    further development of more effective PRA based
    on new decision support systems.

PRATIQUE partners
PRATIQUE Principal project objectives Work
  • To assemble the datasets required to construct
    PRAs valid for the whole of the EU (WP1)
  • To conduct multi-disciplinary research to enhance
    the techniques used in PRA for
  • the assessment of economic, environmental and
    social impacts (WP2)
  • standardising and summarising risk (WP3)
  • pathway analysis and systems approaches (WP4)
  • guiding actions during pest outbreaks (WP5)
  • To ensure that the PRA scheme is fit for purpose
    and user-friendly (WP6)

WP 2 Enhancing techniques for economic,
environmental and social impacts
  • To determine the extent to which the analysis of
    species traits can be used to identify those
    species that can cause significant impacts in
    cultivated and uncultivated habitats
  • To develop a novel scoring system to assess
    impacts and determine thresholds for
    phytosanitary action
  • To enhance existing techniques and develop new
    tools for assessing economic, environmental and
    social impacts
  • To develop a generic integrated model to assess
    pest spread and impacts

WP 3 Enhancing techniques for standardising
and summarising pest risk assessments
  • To enhance the consistency and standardisation of
    pest risk assessments by identifying and applying
    appropriate criteria
  • To develop and test new techniques for
    quantifying uncertainty in pest risk assessments
  • To enhance techniques for mapping endangered
    areas taking current and future climate, land use
    and economic impacts into account
  • To develop and test new techniques for
    summarising and communicating overall risk in
    pest risk assessment

WP 4 Enhancing techniques for pathway analysis
and systems approaches
  • Review of current approaches to pathway analysis
    in PRA
  • Review of the current application of systems
    approaches in PRA
  • Development of a pathway risk analysis module for
    the PRA scheme with a protocol for the
    application of neural networks and methods for
    enhancing consistency
  • Development of a systems approach module for the
    PRA scheme

WP 5 Developing a decision support system for
the eradication and containment of pest outbreaks
  • To carry out a meta-analysis of the successes and
    failures of pest eradication and containment
    programmes worldwide
  • To provide guidance for analysing the
    cost-effectiveness of pest eradication and
    containment measures
  • To develop a decision support scheme to support
    actions to be taken following pest outbreaks
  • To provide recommendations for the application of
    pest surveillance techniques in detecting pest
    incursions and managing outbreaks

WP 6 Project validation and dissemination with
the development of a web-based PRA scheme
  • To validate the outputs from work packages 1 to 5
    using independent experts and a wide range of
    pests and pathways
  • To create a web-enabled EPPO PRA scheme
    incorporating outputs from work packages 1 to 5
  • To consolidate and disseminate project outputs by
    providing a manual and examples of best practice
    with the web-enabled PRA scheme

Web-based PRA scheme
As a first step towards applying Systems
Approach, section 3 questions were re-ordered as
a time line, related to Critical Control Points
Significant probability of Entry
Significant probability of establishment
Is the pest under official control? Is produce
from pest free areas? Is place of production low
prevalence? Are there other targeted activities
that may be equivalent?
Existing management practices on pathway (1.7)
or existing management practices in Importing
country prevents entry or establishment of
organism (1.21)
Are existing measures sufficient and acceptable
to the importer?
Agreement on data requirements Monitoring
surveillance (3.25 3.26 3.27 3.28)
Commodity pathway 1.
Dunnage etc pathway 1.
Conveyances pathway 1.
Plants for planting pathway for potential weeds
Natural Spread pathway 1.
Checklist of risk management policy
Commodity pathway (1, 2, 3 etc)
Identify any reasons for revision
What is the pest status at origin of the pathway?
(present, absent, confined under official
control, low prevalence)
On Farm
Low uncertainty (high confidence)
None found
under official control, pest free areas or place
of production or low prevalence
List available choices (3.30)
3.20 Preventable by treatment of crop
Agreement on data requirements Monitoring
surveillance (3.25 3.26 3.27 3.28)
High uncertainty (Low confidence)
3.24 Preventable by production certification
scheme (Pest free planting material or specified
phytosanitary status)
Confirmatory surveys in exporting country

Developing trade opportunities an integrated
systems approach for pest risk management
  • STDF Proposal Preparation Grant
  • Focus on S E Asia sub-region

Beyond Compliance
  • Problems (Benefits)
  • Failure of single/rigid measures can be
    disruptive to trade (less risk in multiple
    measure/adaptive systems, more flexibility from
    Systems Approach (SA), reduced interceptions in
    export markets) limitations of current measures
    (improved performance, availability, cost,
    quality impacts, practicality)
  • Rigid measures may be applied without regard to
    risk from real pest challenge, control options
    and without benefit of local knowledge and
    decision making skills (broader stakeholder
    involvement, cost and responsibility sharing,
    more ownership of risk management, more
    stakeholder control over process)
  • Asymmetric relations in trade lack of confidence
    in negotiations especially for the more complex
    SA examples (SA defined and understood, SA
    implemented or planned, market access started/in
    discussion, better opportunities for less active
    exporter countries in the Region by Regional SA)
    reactive relations with trading partners (more
    control over system in negotiation)

  • Pest risk management imposed by importing country
    NPPOs will be more transparent, consistent and
    justified as proportional to the estimated risk.
  • Measures combined in the new approach will be
    more widely applied without unnecessary
  • National goals to reduce use of chemical-based
    end point treatments will be advanced.
  • Exporting countries with fewer resources will
    have the capacity to more confidently negotiate
    equivalence agreements to use measures better
    suited to their own conditions.

Anticipated Outputs
  • A description of pest risk management evaluation
    and design in the region
  • Case studies of priority trade opportunities
    using Systems Approach for pest risk management.
    (7 cases identified)
  • Demonstration and evaluation of quantification
    and analytical tools (specifically control points
    and Bayesian Nets) to support use of Systems
  • Establishment of a competency base with the
    methodology in the SE Asian subregion
  • A plan for a harmonised framework (possibly
    leading to an RSPM)

Beyond Compliance - activities
  • Output Demonstration and evaluation of
    quantification and analytical tools
  • (Control Points and BBN)
  • Development of the tool
  • Demonstration of the tool
  • Validation of the tool
  • for each of the case studies.
