Climate change represents an unprecedented challenge to the world's bio-sphere and to the global community. It is a threat beyond compare to the planet's biodiversity, to human health and to the world's economy. It also represents a unique challenge for plant health. Climate change will affect ecosys-tems and agricultural production systems throughout the world. It will influence in-ternational trade flows of agricultural products and it will change the infectivity, se-verity and distribution of pests throughout the world. Climate change will, in particular, present an extraordinary trial to the international plant health community and its ability to react in a scientific, decisive and unified manner to these challenges.
