FAO’s Animal Production and Health Division

Protecting livestock against diseases and preventing their spread is one of the keys to fighting hunger, malnutrition and poverty. The Emergency Prevention System for Transboundary Animal and Plant Pests and Diseases (EMPRES) was established by FAO’s Director General in 1994. AGA is entrusted with the EMPRES animal disease component, which provides information, training and emergency assistance to countries to prevent, contain and control the world’s most serious livestock diseases, while also surveying for newly emerging pathogens.
