Food Chain Crisis: Early Warning Bulletin | April - June 2017

Issue No. 23

In the 23rd issue of the Food Chain Crisis (FCC) Early Warning Bulletin covering the period between April and June 2017, FCC threats are expected to occur in the regions of Africa, Americas, Asia, and Europe where they will be either persisting within a country, or possibly spreading to neighboring countries, or will be latent and re-emerge/amplify at a certain time.

The purpose of the FCC Early Warning Bulletin is to inform FAO and other international organizations, countries, scientific experts, and decision makers on the forecast of threats to animal and plant health and food safety having a potential high impact on food and nutrition security for the three months ahead. These threats are transboundary animal and plant pests and diseases including forest pests and aquatic diseases, and food safety threats.

The bulletin contains official and unofficial information from various sources collected and analyzed by FAO experts.

The FCC Early Warning Bulletin is a product of collaboration between the Intelligence and Coordination Unit of the Food Chain Crisis Management Framework (FCC-ICU), the FAO Emergency Prevention System (EMPRES) for transboundary animal and plant pests and diseases and food safety threats, the FAO Global Early Warning System for transboundary animal diseases, including zoonoses (GLEWS), and the Global Information and Early Warning System (GIEWS). FCC-ICU coordinates and produces the bulletin.
