    The FAO Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) is working with member countries to strengthen the capacity of their animal health sector since the emergence of highly pathogenic avian influenza in the region in 2004. It continues to support countries to reduce the risks of animal health threats that can devastate livelihoods and food security. By building countries’ capacities to prevent, detect and respond to these threats, FAO ECTAD plays an essential role in protecting the health of people and animals, and safeguarding farmers’ livelihoods, economy and food security. The FAO ECTAD implements several activities that contribute to capacity development, addressing cross-cutting issues and risk mitigation. The FAO ECTAD in Asia and the Pacific operates in several countries including Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Thailand and Viet Nam.

    As part of the USAID Emerging Pandemic Threats 2 (EPT2) programme, FAO works closely with the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Environment and Forestry to build greater capacity to address emerging infectious diseases and zoonoses. The global health threat of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), was given greater attention within the ECTAD programme this year and both AMR and communicating One Health to the public will receive even more support in the final year of the EPT2 programme. To accomplish its objectives, the FAO Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) works closely with Government of Indonesia line ministries, local government Livestock and Animal Health Services, WHO, USAID, the Australia AIP-EID project, private sector partners and civil society organisations.

    The Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) plans and delivers veterinary assistance to FAO member countries responding to the threat of transboundary animal health crises. The link between humans, animals and the surrounding environment is particularly close in developing regions. Farming communities raise animals that provide transport, draught power, fuel and clothing, as well as food. Due to the broad reliance on animals, zoonotic and non-zoonotic animal diseases can have even wider devastating impacts. This publication details the areas of collaboration at ECTAD, accomplishments and future plans. The areas of collaboration include workforce development; risk mitigation and management; multi-sectoral coordination; and, antimicrobial resistance.
