Antimicrobial Resistance

The human food chain is continuously threatened by the increasing number of outbreaks of transboundary animal and plant pests and diseases, including aquatic and forest pests and diseases, and food safety and radiation events.

Avian influenza, Peste des petits ruminants, Fall armyworm, locust and other insect infestations, banana diseases, food-borne pathogens and mycotoxins are some examples of threats to the human food chain that may impact human health, food security, livelihoods, national economies and global markets.

Through the Food Chain Crisis Management Framework (FCC), FAO addresses the risks to the human food chain through a comprehensive, multidisciplinary and institution-wide collaborative approach.
