Third Regional Workshop, FAO TCP/RER/3402
28-31 January 2014, Zagreb, Croatia
Within the framework of the project entitled: “Assistance to Western Balkan countries for improving compliance to international standards on aquatic animal health”, FAO is organizing a Regional workshop on Improving Risk Analysis for Movements of Live Aquatic Animals"". This event is already the third major activity of this regional project.
The regional TCP/RER/3402 project was a result of a consultative and consensus building process among countries of the West Balkan region. The project addresses concerns expressed by the five participating FAO member countries - Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia -, and builds upon the technical areas identified as having highest priority to assist all participating countries in developing capacity to implement international standards.
The specific objectives of the current workshop are (1) to review the current status of risk analysis for aquatic animals in participating countries, and (2) to provide introductory training in risk analysis to participants.
