    This document presents findings of the final evaluation of the project “Development of a Framework for the Progressive Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease in Pakistan”. The project ended in September 2015 after a four-year implementation period. The project budget was USD 7.3 million, which was spent by the end of the implementation period. The main donors were the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Federal and Provincial Governments of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The pro ject was implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), under number GCP/PAK/123/USA. The main project beneficiaries were strategically selected holders of buffaloes and cattle, and the public veterinary services at federal and provincial levels. The purpose of this final evaluation is to analyse project achievements in their context, draw lessons for planners, and identify good practices. While this report is of interest to all project stakeholders, it is espe cially useful for those addressing the control of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) in Pakistan.

    Also available in:

    Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) is prevalent in Mozambique and livestock farmers who entirely rely on the well-being and marketability of their animals need to be protected from severe economic losses caused by movement restrictions related to the disease. The project aimed to contribute to the development of capacities to better tackle the progressive control and eradication of FMD and help improve the animal health situation in the country.

    Livestock play an important role in Afghanistan, boosting nutrition and providing livelihoods. Outbreaks of animal diseases such as Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) and peste des petits ruminants (PPR) are a constant threat to improving nutrition and farmer incomes. The Project ‘Building resilience and self-reliance of livestock keepers by improving control of FMD and other Transboundary Animal Diseases (TADs)’ aimed at providing assistance at central, province, and community level, in strengthening food security through an improved on-farm livestock healthcare system. The evaluation found there was good progress in improving animal health and disease control. The Project exceeded original vaccination targets, owing to a close collaboration with the private sector and non-governmental organizations. Epidemiology skills were improved in the country but remain limited while analytical skills remain a critical need and there is a continuing need for better capture of outbreak and disease surveillance data. The major weakness of the Project was the lack of sustainability with no clear exit plan. The evaluation recommends that there be an immediate follow-up project.
