The overall objective is to contribute to the improvement of livelihoods and resilience of vulnerable rural smallholders and pastoralists in the main livestock production area of South-Eastern Sudan.
The specific objective is to support the trade and export of livestock, thereby increasing incomes and the resilience of vulnerable smallholders and pastoralists in the target areas by ensuring that appropriate animal disease surveillance and control is operational in South-Eastern Sudan. This will be achieved by strengthening technical capacities at State level for coordinated epidemio-surveillance and control of trans-boundary animal diseases; strengthening Sudan’s compliance of zoo-sanitary measures for exportation of livestock with OIE standards; conducting awareness raising and resilience building of vulnerable smallholder families and pastoralists with regard to animal health, productivity and livestock trade.
