The 32nd Annual Meeting of the Tree Protection Co-operative Programme (TPCP) and DSI/NRF Centre of Excellence in Plant Health Biotechnology (CPHB)

Venue: Future Africa Campus

The annual meeting of the Tree Protection Co-operative Programme (TPCP) and DSI-NRF Centre of Excellence in Plant Health Biotechnology (CPHB) has become one of the most important meetings relating to forest tree health in South Africa and globally. The 2021 TPCP/CPHB meeting will take place on the 4th of May. This event is open to staff of member companies of the TPCP and other stakeholders in the TPCP and CPHB. Due to Covid-19 and its regulations, this event will take place virtually with a possibility that some form of hybrid interactions could be possible.

As has been the case in the past, the 32nd annual meeting of the TPCP will focus on key issues relating to forest tree health in South Africa. Importantly, the meeting will again seek to provide feedback to forest industry and other stakeholders on programmes focused on dealing with threatening pest and disease problems following an integrated pest management approach.

Please note that the National Symposium on Biological Invasions 2021 organized by the Centre for Biological Control (CBC) in collaboration with Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI) will also happen virtually on the 5th and 6th of May.
