Evaluation of FAO’s contribution to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan

30 November 2017
Pakistan has more livestock than people, and FAO can help to harness this immense resource for greater food security. For the eradication of animal diseases, FAO is well-positioned to assist the federal and provincial governments in reforming related legislation and allocating the required resources. The Organization demonstrated a successful model of cooperation between federal and provincial authorities to control some animal diseases. This model should be applied to the control of other diseases throughout the country and other important constraints [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s contribution to enable inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems (SO4)

19 October 2017
In today’s interconnected world, with globalized food trade and resource flows across different regions, a ‘systems thinking’ for sustainable consumption and production patterns is needed. FAO’s SO4 programme is about broadening perspectives - from a focus on production to a holistic agricultural and food system approach. It seeks to optimize resource efficiencies in the production and delivery of cost-effective, healthy and safe products for all, while ensuring the inclusion and integration of smallholder producers, vulnerable consumer groups and economically weaker [...]

Final Evaluation of “Progressive Control of Peste des Petits Ruminants in Pakistan” GCP/PAK/127/USA

16 October 2017
Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) is an animal disease which has become endemic in Pakistan since its first appearance in 1991. It spreads easily among herds and across borders and is often fatal for the sheep and goats it affects. With almost 100 million small ruminants, Pakistan’s livestock sector is highly vulnerable, with poorer households being disproportionately affected. In 2013 the Government of Pakistan and FAO set up a PPR control project, building on previous experiences in disease control. This [...]
