    The Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) plans and delivers veterinary assistance to FAO member countries responding to the threat of transboundary animal health crises. The link between humans, animals and the surrounding environment is particularly close in developing regions. Farming communities raise animals that provide transport, draught power, fuel and clothing, as well as food. Due to the broad reliance on animals, zoonotic and non-zoonotic animal diseases can have even wider devastating impacts. This publication details the areas of collaboration at ECTAD, accomplishments and future plans. The areas of collaboration include workforce development; risk mitigation and management; multi-sectoral coordination; and, antimicrobial resistance.

    As part of the USAID Emerging Pandemic Threats 2 (EPT2) programme, FAO works closely with the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Environment and Forestry to build greater capacity to address emerging infectious diseases and zoonoses. The global health threat of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), was given greater attention within the ECTAD programme this year and both AMR and communicating One Health to the public will receive even more support in the final year of the EPT2 programme. To accomplish its objectives, the FAO Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) works closely with Government of Indonesia line ministries, local government Livestock and Animal Health Services, WHO, USAID, the Australia AIP-EID project, private sector partners and civil society organisations.
