Sheikh Zayed Centre (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

The European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EuFMD) and FAO’s Emergency Prevention System (EMPRES) are pleased to welcome the symposium on Lumpy Skin Disease – How science can support disease management and control. 

The objective of the event is to provide scientists with a platform to present and discuss their most updated findings on a wide range of LSD and LSDV related topics. In case of an LSD outbreak occurrence, these data would enhance the preparedness of competent national authorities and provide them with science-based, state-of-the-art tools to design and implement effective disease management, control and eradication policies against LSD. 

The meeting will cover the following topics:

·         Current status and advances in epidemiological knowledge on LSD;

·         Combatting LSD in different farming scenarios (transmission pathways and risk monitoring and challenges);

·         Vaccines, vaccination strategies, diagnostics.
