L’évaluation à la FAO

Final evaluation of "Pursuing pastoralist resilience through improved animal health service delivery in pastoralist areas of Ethiopia"

08/04/2020

Small ruminants are the main source of livelihood for rural agropastoralists in Ethiopia. Transboundary animal diseases (TADs) are a significant cause of reduced production and productivity. TADs like Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR), Sheep and Goat Pox (SGP) and Contagious Caprine Pleuropneumonia (CCPP) have contributed to a high level of sheep and goat mortality, especially in lambs and kids. The project, implemented by FAO between 2014 and 2020, was designed to support the strengthening of the surveillance system for most TADs. The project had a primary focus to implement a progressive control programme for Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR).

The evaluation found that the project has advanced PPR control and eradication and that the country has the capability to continue this momentum for the greater ambition of eradicating PPR across Ethiopia by 2027. To ensure the sustainability of future projects, challenges must be overcome relating to government strategy, coordination and resources.
