Pest Risk Analysis
PRA tools are available at http://capra.eppo.org/
After registering for this open access website, the CAPRA (Computer Assisted Pest Risk Analysis) program can be downloaded enabling the user to carry out a PRA according to the EPPO decision-support scheme. Useful datasets for PRA have also been assembled according to their relevance for components of the PRA. Supporting documents, including a user manual and example PRAs and contingency plans, are included on the site together with further information about the EU-funded PRATIQUE project to develop PRA tools in which CABI was a partner.
