FAO's Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health (EMC-AH) activated an Incident Coordination Group (ICG) in January 2020 to coordinate and monitor the COVID-19 event from an animal health perspective. The ICG comprises participants from several partner organizations, and FAO regional and country offices. Due to the added threat of COVID-19 among people already facing food insecurity, and those in situations that threaten their livelihoods, monitoring the evolution of the event and contributing to international response coordination efforts, with a focus on animal health, is essential to protecting vulnerable populations and ensuring good communication between all relevant parties. This one pager summarises the activities of, and explains the background to, the COVID-19 ICG, which continues to meet vitually on a weekly basis.
