Risk analysis, risk communication and governance support for sustainable management of antimicrobial resistance in food production systems

Full title of the project: Risk analysis, risk communication and governance support for sustainable management of antimicrobial resistance in food production systems

Status: Ongoing

Donor: Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, NORAD

Target Countries: Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, Uganda, Malawi, Africa region

Period: March 2019 to May 2021

Objectives: Improving the capacity for global prevention and control of AMR by strengthening the global knowledge base for risk analysis, risk communication and legislation on AMR, with country access ensured.

Outcomes and outputs:

Outcome: AMR stakeholders in countries and regions strengthen their capacities for risk management through risk analysis, risk communication and legislation on AMR. The project also contributes to dissemination of international recommendations and guidelines to ensure a One Health approach.

Output 1: National food and agriculture services improve their risk analysis capacities and prioritize focus areas for implementation of their National Action Plans on AMR through the application of a methodology developed by FAO for a qualitative evaluation of the risks of AMR derived from food production.

Output 2: National authorities and local food chain actors improve their capacity for the exchange of risk information and perceptions via the FAO’s AMR Behaviour Change Community of Practice, a platform for the interdisciplinary development of pilot interventions incorporating behavioural science insights in Africa.  

Output 3: National legislators strengthen the governance of AMR by carrying out an analysis of relevant legislation through a methodology developed by FAO. AMR-Lex database is finalized to ensure global access to existing legislation relevant to AMR into one easily searchable place.

Output 4: Inter-agency coordination on AMR is strengthened by participation in high-level meetings and dissemination of international recommendations and guidance.
