Strengthening animal health emergency responses in Eastern Africa


FAO provided training to experts on emergency management.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) trained twenty future trainers drawn from four Eastern Africa nations (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda) on emergency preparedness and management.

The training acquainted participants with the methodologies of the Good Emergency Management Practice (GEMP) Manual, aiming at strengthening emergency management capabilities, particularly in the animal health domain.

Based on the Manual, participants were exposed to new tools and methods linked to emergency management, that range from advocacy to field operation management, along a progressive pathway for emergency preparedness (PPEP).
