About this Publication:

This ‘Impetus Strategy Paper’ highlights areas that can immediately improve livestock development in Africa. The paper does not try to describe every driver of change, future projection or challenge facing the sector today. The paper recognises and draws from the excellent analyses recently carried out by FAO, the World Bank and African Union’s Inter-African Bureau of Animal Resources (AU/IBAR) on African Livestock and Global Livestock Sector Development, along with detailed analysis by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) on animal health and veterinary governance. Such analysis was carried out and formulated by large teams of subject areas specialists and this paper recognises their expertise and robust analysis of the issues.
