    Developing National Implementation Capacities for the Control of Tsetse and Animal African Trypanosomosis in Ethiopia - TCP/ETH/3702 2022

    Livestock is an extremely important sector in Ethiopia. As a source of food, income and draft power, animal rearing provides livelihoods for 80 percent of the country’s rural population. The sector makes up about 20 percent of national gross domestic product (GDP) and 45 percent of the agricultural GDP. Despite its importance, the sector faces problems, and disease is one of the most significant. African Animal Trypanosomosis (AAT), which is transmitted by the tsetse fly, causes significant losses in the sector, both directly by contributing to animal deaths and low levels of production, and indirectly by reducing areas of cultivable land, which leads to land use imbalances, natural resource exploitation, and low levels of growth and diversification of crop-livestock production systems. For these reasons, AAT is a major threat to livelihoods and food security. In 2012, the Government of Ethiopia developed a national strategy for the control and eradication of tsetse and trypanosomosis (T&T), with the ultimate aim of enhancing mixed crop-livestock production systems to support both domestic and export demands for agricultural products. This, in turn, would contribute to food security and poverty reduction in the country.
