Starting a pest risk analysis

The tool has two workflows for PRA. The one you choose depends on the reason for conducting the analysis.

By Pathway

For example: a request to import onions from South Africa to Zambia.

  1. Identify the pests that are associated with the pathway

  2. Conduct a risk assessment for all the major pests that may be introduced to the risk area via this pathway


By Pest

For example: risk of red palm weevil (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus) for Ghana

  1. Identify the potential pathways for pest entry to the risk area

  2. Assess the likelihood of introduction of the pest via each pathway. Then continue the single pest risk assessment
