In an international environment marked by uncertainty and instability, protecting animals from the malicious use of toxic biological agents is crucial to maintaining global food and health security. For this reason the OIE, FAO and INTERPOL are working on a joint project: “Building resilience against agro-terrorism and agro-crime”.
International cooperation against agro-terrorism
The project will be implemented in three phases: a first phase of study and evaluation, a second training phase and a third phase of international cooperation. A global Conference on Emergency Management to revisit and share the knowledge accumulated during the initiative’s implementation will conclude this first project of its kind.
This project is supported by the Weapons Threat Reduction Program (WTRP) of Global Affairs Canada.
