    The Emergency Prevention System (EMPRES), established in 1994, is the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) flagship programme to prevent food chain crises, with the goal of enhancing world food security and fighting transboundary animal and plant pests and diseases. EMPRES-Animal Health is the component dealing with the effective prevention and control of transboundary animal, zoonotic and emerging diseases on a regional and global basis, through international cooperation involving early warning, rapid reaction, enabling research and coordination. The latest issue of the component’s flagship publication, EMPRES-Animal Health 360, is available now. This issue explores a range of topics related to the continued threat transboundary animal and zoonotic diseases pose to food security, livelihoods and global health. It highlights efforts being made to address high-impact diseases including avian influenza, African swine fever and lumpy skin disease. In addition to providing analyses and lessons learned from disease outbreaks and responses carried out in Cameroon, Mongolia and Viet Nam, this issue highlights how FAO initiatives and tools, such as the EMPRES Global Animal Disease Information System (EMPRES-i+) and the Virtual Learning Centers, are increasing animal health capacity at the global, regional and national level.

    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.

    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In order to understand the impact of the war on the commercial agricultural sector in Ukraine, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is undertaking a series of monitoring surveys, targeting commercial grain producers across the country. This Data in Emergencies Monitoring (DIEM-Monitoring) summary shares the findings of the first survey conducted between March and April 2022. FAO established the DIEM-Monitoring System to collect, analyse and disseminate data on shocks and livelihoods in countries prone to multiple shocks. DIEM-Monitoring aims to inform decision making by providing regularly updated information on how different shocks are affecting the livelihoods and food security of agricultural populations. Information is collected from primary sources in the production process: producers, traders or marketers, input suppliers, extension officers and other key informants.
