Material type: materialTypeLabelArticleSeries: FAO Committee on Agriculture (COAG) ; Inf.9.Publisher: Rome (Italy) : FAO, 2003Description: 35 pages.Other title: Evaluación del Componente del Programa 2.1.3 Relativo a la Sanidad Animal.Subject(s): Food and Agriculture Organization | Animal health | International cooperation | LivestockSummary: The livestock sector is growing in importance more rapidly than any other agricultural sector. Livestock are particularly important in the developing world, where they contribute to the livelihood of 70 percent of the world’s rural poor. Sustained livestock production depends on the maintenance of healthy animals which, in developing countries, means paying particular attention to the problems of both endemic and introduced animal diseases. FAO has been playing a well-established role in animal health work, increasingly as part of its broader objectives related to reducing poverty, ensuring food security and preserving natural resources. Since 1994, the Organization has given priority to transboundary animal diseases through the Emergency Prevention System for Transboundary Animal and Plant Pests and Diseases (EMPRES), while still continuing its work on parasitic diseases, particularly trypanosomiasis.
