    Also available in:
    No results found.

    On 27 May 2015 a webinar was organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that addressed the importance of establishing effective national communication and coordination mechanisms on the topic of biosafety. Prior to this webinar, an online discussion was held to gather input and experiences of countries that were used to develop the content. During the webinar, Japan, Mauritius, Iran and Mexico shared their experiences, challenges and best practices in this field. In the interactive discussions session participants acknowledged the importance of national communication and coordination mechanisms. However, they also noted that the lack of resources, awareness or technical capacity is a challenge to the establishment of such mechanisms. Participants also noted the importance of engaging the general public in the decision-making regarding GM Os. Perspectives were shared on public consultation procedures, communication with the media and the use social media systems. It was suggested that international organizations could facilitate cross-sectoral communication by sharing contact information of their Focal/Contact Points.

    Sustainable business in animal health service provision through training for veterinary paraprofessionals: Lessons learned, no. 3

    Livestock diseases have gender implications. Women, who make up 60 percent of the world’s poor livestock keepers can be particularly affected and are therefore an important target group for last-mile animal health services. To promote the provision of comprehensive and inclusive animal health services the “Sustainable Business in Animal Health Service Provision through Training of Veterinary Paraprofessionals” project, aims to develop and evaluate a gender-sensitive training model to improve VPP services in three pilot countries: Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda. This will be done through Continuing Professional Development (CPD) delivered through a blended learning approach that includes both online and practical face-to-face training courses. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is not gender neutral. The digital divide, or existing inequalities in ICT ownership, access, and control, is closely linked to structural inequalities and gender norms and still prevents many women from reaping the benefits of ICT on a global scale. Women's limited access to ICTs is a barrier to animal health and one of the reasons why women tend to be less productive and efficient than men in livestock sector, negatively impacting household food and nutrition security. To inform the gender-sensitive project design for virtual training of VPPs, dissemination of information to smallholder farmers, and digital engagement to connect VPPs with smallholder farmers, a desk study was conducted on gender, animal health, and ICT in Africa. This report summarizes key findings and lessons learned from this research.
