This is a very important sector in our project portfolio and it is closely linked with our expertise in the livestock and crop production sector. Healthy livestock, produced in a sustainable, climate smart manner, is the prerequisite for safe food of animal origin. Strategies to combat zoonotic and emerging diseases with the potential to affect human health, are embedded in the One Health approach and follow the Tri-partite principles set out by FAO, OIE and WHO.
Ranging from specific livestock disease control programmes to Veterinary Public Health, the in-house expertise as well as experts from collaborating international veterinary and food safety institutions lead to the appropriate solutions.
Expertise on biosecurity, HACCP and ISO accreditation to establish and maintain food safety standards has been provided to several projects.
