    Linking community-based animal health services with natural resource conflict mitigation in the Abyei Administrative Area 2017

    The Abyei Administrative Area (AAA) is a contested zone located on the central border between South Sudan and Sudan. Its status has remained unresolved since South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011, and the governments failed to agree on the border division. A United Nations peacekeeping mission, the United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA), has since monitored the situation. It is entrusted with overseeing demilitarisation and maintaining security in the area. Mistrust and lack of dialogue have been critical components of this conflict. FAO has played a key role in initiating and facilitating a process focused on dialogue and building social cohesion at grassroots level, contributing to wider sustaining peace initiatives. FAO identified a window of opportunity through the technical delivery of community-based animal health veterinary services (embedded in an agricultural livelihood support strategy), in an effort to improve inter-community relations and contribute to s ustaining peace objectives.

    Legislation for veterinary drugs control 2004

    This paper stems from the author’s experience since 2000 as an FAO consultant advising governments in three developing countries (Mozambique, Rwanda and Nepal) on their veterinary legislation, in particular that controlling the supply of veterinary drugs. Because of the international dimension of drug manufacture and supply, this technical assistance involved examining not only the existing legislation in the countries concerned, but also the corresponding laws of neighbouring countries either where the drugs originated or through which they travelled in transit. The paper draws on that experience, but veterinary drugs laws from other countries will also be included in the study, with a view to getting a more representative range of experience both geographically and in level of development.

    Project
    Improving Global, Regional and National Capacities for Field Veterinary Epidemiology and Surveillance Networks - GCP/GLO/892/USA 2024
    Also available in:

    With veterinary epidemiology capacities around the world lacking, there is high demand for a well-trained global veterinary workforce. Training veterinarians and animal health professionals in field veterinary epidemiology will better equip them to monitor livestock diseases, including zoonotic diseases. As a result, surveillance can be conducted efficiently and outbreaks identified and analysed more rapidly, allowing countries to prevent and respond to outbreaks in a more effective and timely manner using a One Health approach. The present project, the second phase of a project implemented between 2014 and 2018, aimed to continue to build field veterinary epidemiology capacity through training sessions on field epidemiology for veterinarians, participatory epidemiology/disease surveillance (PE/PDS) and risk assessment, as well as to support sustainable networks through the development of disease information platforms for sharing of epidemiological information.
