FAO project boosts capacity building in Southern African countries fighting small ruminant plague

05/08/2013 - 

A total population of 12 million sheep and goats in Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia and 50 million in Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries are at great risk of Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR), a disease that attacks small ruminants.

FAO is currently partnering with the three countries to prevent further spread of the disease through the regional Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) of the Sub-regional Office for Southern Africa, based in Harare.
The TCP project is based on the collaboration of the three ministries together with FAO and will run for a two-year period, from 2013 to 2015.
