Enhancing multi-stakeholder partnerships to strengthen rural households’ resilience strategies through animal health interventions
October 1, 2021
We are pleased to invite you to the seminar “Coping with climate change: the key role of livestock ownership”, organized by the Animal Production and Health Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in partnership with the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and the African Union (AU).
The seminar will highlight the role of small ruminants in strengthening rural households’ resilience to climate shocks and discuss the Peste des Petits Ruminants Global Eradication Programme (PPR GEP) as an animal health initiative contributing to climate adaptation.
The seminar is part of All4Climate – Italy 2021, a lineup of climate events launched by the Italian Ministry for Ecological Transition in collaboration with the WorldBank Group’s Connect4Climate, which aims to foster proactive dialogue on the challenges of the climate crisis and deliver on the objectives of the Paris Agreement. This initiative coincides with PreCOP26, the official ministerial meeting hosted by Italy from 30 September to 2 October 2021 ahead of this year’s UN Climate Summit.
