    African Swine Fever Emergency Preparedness in Latin America and The Caribbean - TCP/RLA/3729 2022
    Also available in:

    African swine fever ( is a viral disease with potentially serious implications for global trade and food safety The virus remains active for long periods of time in infected blood, faeces and tissues, and there is currently no vaccine, which makes it difficult to contain the disease and impossible to control it The disease has a major impact on countries, regions and subregions generating the following i job losses ;;( loss of export markets ;;( animal mortality ;;( resource scarcity among low income populations ;;( loss of animal protein sources and ( reduction of vulnerable families’ economic capacity In the Americas there are two modalities of pig production rural and industrial Rural production is carried out by smallholder farmers, who use low level technologies and keep small numbers of animals that transform grass, local crops and household waste into animal protein This is based mainly on domestic animal husbandry, with few animals on each farm, but spread over large geographical areas In these farms, the lack of veterinary care, health control, identification and traceability poses a major risk for the introduction of ASF In contrast, industrial pig production employs specialized technologies with large numbers of animals, veterinary assistance and a well organized slaughter and marketing chain An ASF outbreak would have a devastating impact on the livelihoods of rural inhabitants who raise pigs as a source of additional income Moreover, the costs of control measures, including the culling of infected stock and disinfection of infrastructure and fomites, will diminish resilience in the affected areas After an absence of more than 40 years from Latin America and the Caribbean, the fact that ASF has appeared in the region demonstrates the need for a project to provide tools and tasks to the Official Veterinary Services ( In collaboration with the World Organization for Animal Health ( FAO has created the Standing Group of Experts of the Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF TADs) for the Americas.

    Guidelines for African swine fever (ASF) prevention and control in smallholder pig farming in Asia
    Clean chain approach for African swine fever in smallholder settings
    2022
    Also available in:

    African swine fever (ASF) is a highly fatal infectious disease of domestic and wild pigs with no effective vaccine or treatment. The incursion of ASF into Asia and the Pacific region has been a major concern as the region is the major pig production area, which produces over 58 percent of pigs globally (FAOSTAT). The impact of ASF on economies and food security is increasingly worrying. As the disease continues to expand into new territories, preparedness and control activities need to be constantly adjusted to adapt to situations observed in the field that may be contrary to what was expected based on international standards or experiences from other parts of the world. Through various regional and national consultation meetings, affected countries have requested technical relevant technical guidelines for ASF control that are practical especially for smallholder pig farmers in the context of Asia (SO5). This volume is the fourth of the series of the “Guidelines for African swine fever (ASF) prevention and control in smallholder pig farming in Asia” which outlines the principles of an ASF clean-chain system for smallholder pig producers in Southeast Asia. It provides recommendations on the practical application of good biosecurity management practices combined with traceability in smallholder pig systems necessary for the continued production and supply of commodities along the pork value chain irrespective of the prevailing ASF virus risk situation.

    Assessing the impact of trade and other policies on global value chain (GVC) participation, positioning and vertical specialization in agriculture and food

    This technical paper includes:  A literature review of the impact of trade policies and domestic support measures (for example, subsidies) on global value chain (GVC) participation including the effects of tariffs and non-tariff measures, Regional Trade Agreements (RTAs) and Rules of Origin, as well as recent market developments and trade tensions on GVC linkages.  The computation of indicators and decomposition for 18 agri-food sectors and 29 countries and aggregate regions, derived from the most recent (2014) release of the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) database.  The description of the modeling and simulation exercises using a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) Model to analyse the effects of tariffs on GVC participation/positioning on countries and regions, and conduct simulation scenarios to quantitatively assess the effects of trade and other policy changes on GVCs participation (scenarios will include a reduction on tariff levels and trade liberalization).
