The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2020 the “International Year of Plant Health” (IYPH) and Luxembourg have issued a stamp to celebrate the year-long initiative.
Plants are an existential element for life on earth.
The initiative aims to underline the importance of plant health for food security, the supply of raw materials, biodiversity and the various services provided by agriculture, forestry, water management and other ecosystems on Earth.
In addressing this topic, the United Nations is making an important contribution to raising awareness in a globalised world in which the implementation of sustainable development goals is becoming increasingly important.
