Food Chain Crisis Management Framework
 

Welcome to the FCC

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

Avian influenza, H1N1, cassava diseases, locust infestations, Salmonellosis and dioxin are some examples of threats to the human food chain that may impact human health, food security, 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, interdisciplinary and institution-wide collaborative approach.
