    The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the lives of individuals, communities, and societies around the world, including those working in the animal health sector. To further examine the impact of COVID-19 on the activities of animal health workers and their ability to report animal disease, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health (EMC-AH) and Emergency Prevention System for Animal Health (EMPRES-AH) conducted surveys to collect and analyze data on the topic. To do so, EMPRES-AH designed a survey using the Event Mobile Application (EMA-i) tool, which was developed by FAO to support veterinary services in real-time disease reporting, whereas EMC-AH developed a specific survey for veterinary services that was circulated through national Chief Veterinarian Officers (CVOs) with support from FAO regional offices. This brief presents a breakdown of both surveys, the methodology behind them and a summary of the feedback.

    The project “Sustainable Business through Training for Veterinary Paraprofessionals” aims to incorporate both face-to-face and virtual learning elements in its training program. A desk-study was conducted to inform project design for virtual training. The study Virtual learning strategies for veterinary paraprofessionals" aimed to answer the following questions: - what virtual training approaches already exist for VPPs and allied professions? - which actors are working in this area? - what is the impact of gender on engagement with virtual learning? - what lessons can be drawn from the experiences of those who have conducted virtual training for VPPs and allied professions? This study report summarizes some of the key lessons learned by the virtual learning initiatives that were identified. This document brings together a succinct version of these key lessons.

    The Milan Urban Food Policy Pact monitoring framework
    A practical handbook for implementation
    2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The purpose of this handbook is to provide practical guidance for any city wishing to adopt and implement a monitoring framework of its urban food policy, tailored to its own context and reflecting recommendations from the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP). The guidance sets out practical steps, simple tools, top tips, and a methodology that other cities can follow. The MUFPP declaration lists a set of 37 recommended actions for cities wishing to develop their urban food policy. As an internationally recognized tool, the purpose of the MUFPP monitoring framework is to enable cities to develop their own urban food monitoring system. Cities are not applying “a MUFPP monitoring system” but rather using it as a framework from which to develop their own customized system. This handbook follows the MUFPP approach of methodology ‘designed by cities for cities’. It is based on the results and lessons learned from a seven-month project in 2019 during which three cities - Antananarivo (Madagascar), Nairobi (Kenya), and Quito (Ecuador) – piloted the implementation of the MUFPP Monitoring Framework with technical support from RUAF and FAO. This handbook also provides practical tools and resources (available online to download) for cities and practitioners who wish to develop a food policy monitoring system.
