Technical Assistance for Preparation of the Veterinary Strategy Document

The overall objective and purposes of the project are: (i) to analyse the current situation and detect the main shortcomings in the veterinary field — particularly as regards animal health, animal identification and registration, control of animal movements and animal welfare; (ii) to make a needs assessment and prioritise needs, to determine short-, mid- and long-term goals in view of national interests and obligations arising from ongoing accession negotiations with the European Union; (iii) to base policy decisions on cost-benefit analyses, in close consultation with the animal industry and other stakeholders, and to incorporate these outputs into a veterinary strategy document, which will serve as a key reference document for decision makers, official veterinarians, private veterinary practitioners, staff of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock, non-governmental organisations and other relevant stakeholders.
