Virtual Training Series Helps Countries Prepare for Emergencies Affecting Livestock

By 16th December 2021News


from the FAO Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia:

Natural and man-made disasters occur in various forms, and all of them can severely affect people’s livelihoods through loss of assets, including livestock. In emergencies, helping households protect their livestock and survive the immediate crisis can contribute to a faster recovery of the whole community.

To ensure a more rapid and appropriate response, and enhance efficiency of the preparedness measures across Europe and Central Asia, FAO and the Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS) developed a four-part training programme. Participants from over 20 countries took part in the webinar series that concludes today.
