The Caribbean Plant Health Directors Forum has employed numerous mechanisms over the last fourteen (14) years to achieve the goals of communication and visibility, including exchanging information via the annual CPHD Forum. Ongoing electronic communication with its members has been established to include phytosanitary communication products, Technical Working Groups meetings, and reporting.

The Caribbean Region does not have a regional sanitary organization like (COSAVE, CAN, OIRSA-Central America/Mexica/DR), so the CPHD Forum acts as a gateway of information among Caribbean countries, with transparency being pivotal in the exchange of information through group and individual communication.

Over the past several weeks, the CPHD Secretariat has been working with its Web Developer to create another e-newsletter issue that would promote the work of the CPHD Forum as means to update all stakeholders. We are pleased to share Issue # 2 of the CPHD Newsletter. We hope you find it to be a “good read”, as the CPHD continues its commitment to safeguarding the plant health resources of the Caribbean, advancing safe agricultural trade, and building capacity to manage new and existing pest threats.
