    Evidence-based risk management along the livestock production and market chain: Cambodia 2019

    Since Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) H5N1 was first reported in Cambodia in 2004, outbreaks have repeatedly occurred. Takeo Live Bird Market (LBM) is one of the largest in the country and its poultry value chain connects throughout Cambodia. Moreover, the intensive cross-border movements of people, poultry and poultry products makes Takeo province a high-risk area where HPAI and Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza (LPAI) can easily spread from neighbouring areas. The prolific works of the Pasteur Institute of Cambodia (PIC) and the National Animal Health and Production Research Institute (NAHPRI) have shown that circulation of avian influenza (AI) viruses in the LBM can put poultry and stakeholders at risk of infection. By improving biosecurity and hygiene practices in the sale and slaughter of poultry in live bird markets, the project Evidence Based Risk Management Along the Livestock Production and Market Chain greatly contributes to reduce the circulation of AI viruses and lower the risk of disease transmission. The project is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The provincial local government in Takeo and the Office of Animal Health and Production (OAHP), market poultry traders, sellers and slaughterers are working together in a multi-stakeholder approach to improve the safety of LBM especially the practices of poultry sale and slaughter with guidance from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and the Cambodian General Directorate of Animal Health and Production (GDAHP).

    The demand for poultry and poultry products is increasing in Luangprabang and its surrounding provinces. To meet this demand, the province now imports a large amount of poultry from neighbouring countries. Importing poses a significant risk to the vulnerable local poultry population with the introduction of threats such as transboundary animal diseases, which includes highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). Luangprabang, located in the north of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) has reported HPAI outbreaks in the past and the risk of reintroduction is always high. In order to reduce this risk, the Department of Livestock and Fisheries (DLF), the Government of Lao PDR, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have implemented ‘evidence-based risk management along the livestock production and market chain.’ In addition, related activities were also implemented in three high-risk villages of Luangprabang with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Australian Government.

    Poultry production in South East Asia has been challenged by various animal diseases threats including highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), other emerging zoonotic influenzas and transboundary animal diseases (TADs). In order to mitigate the risk, the Food and Agriculture Organization’s Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (FAO-ECTAD) in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Australian government is implementing the project “Evidence-Based Risk Management along the Livestock Production and Market Chain” in the region.
