    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.

    Foot-and-mouth Disease (FMD) is a transboundary animal disease (TAD) notorious for its ability to severely affect, and indeed disrupt, regional and international trade in animals and animal products. However, the burden FMD imposes on developing countries is generally much less known. In FMD-endemic countries, which are usually developing countries, the disease threatens food security and the livelihoods of smallholders, and prevents animal husbandry sectors from developing their economic potential. In this context, workforce development of veterinary services and animal health professionals is key for early detection, effective management and progressive control of FMD. Many FMD-endemic countries have limited resources to organize and manage training programme on FMD preparedness and control, and to arrange the logistics involved. To overcome these obstacles, the European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EuFMD) promotes the establishment of regional Virtual Learning Centres (VLCs), in collaboration with FAO Regional and Subregional Offices.
