Global Pest Management Coalition Launched

Global Pest Management Coalition

BPCA recently joined 21 pest management associations from around the world to form the Global Pest Management Coalition.

The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) recently met with pest management associations from around the world and formed the “Global Pest Management Coalition”. The mission is to provide a unified voice across the globe promoting the value of pest management in ensuring the protection of health, home, food and businesses.

The recent zika outbreak brought into focus the need for joined-up thinking around pest management; pests do not respect borders, and so a united response is required to address public health crises through sharing of information, exchange of best practice, and presenting a united front to key stakeholders such as governments and the public at large. Pest professionals are a thin line of defence against some of nature’s most harmful organisms, and the Coalition has been established to spread the message of our importance to society.

Simon Forrester, BPCA Chief Executive

Formed alongside the Global Summit for Pest Management Services held in New York, the initiative is set to build on the work of individual Associations and Confederations such as CEP, NPMA and FAOPMA. The next Global Summit scheduled for Europe in 2018 will be an ideal opportunity to reconvene, compare initiatives and develop common tactics.
