Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health Annual Report - November 2018–October 2019
Nov 2019

The past 12 months have seen a rapid increase in African swine fever (ASF) outbreaks around the world. A hardy disease with up to 100 percent mortality rate in pigs and wild boar, ASF has wreaked havoc across many countries, impacting trade, food security and livelihoods.The Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health (EMC-AH), a joint platform linking the Food and Agricultures Organization of the United Nations (FAO)’s Animal Health and Emergency and Resilience divisions, has concentrated much of its activities this year on the disease. The numbers speak for themselves, following multiple requests for assistance from countries in Asia, six out of ten EMC-AH missions focused on ASF this year.

This report is a compilation of EMC-AH’s work this year, from missions in Africa and Asia to assist governments in preparing for an animal health emergency, and indeed extending those preparedness efforts through the delivery of eight workshops in Good Emergency Management Practices (GEMP), to implementing five donor-funded global projects and continuously providing animal health emergency support to countries via its four activated Incident Coordination Groups. The report serves to showcase the Centre’s efforts, and the results of those efforts, and demonstrates its commitment to transparency and accountability.
