31-03-2024 - Call for Members - Expert Advisory Group

  • Expert Advisory Group to support the development of the strategic framework for early warning of animal health threats
  • Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is seeking engagement to create an Expert Advisory Group to inform the development of the Strategic Framework for Early Warning of Animal Health Threats that will lay out the institutional and technical set up with clear priorities, roles, responsibilities and actions to undertake for the operationalization and management of early warning systems (EWS) at country level.

Effective EWS provide the capacity to generate and disseminate timely and meaningful warning information to enable individuals, communities and organizations threatened by a hazard to prepare and act appropriately and in sufficient time to reduce the possibility of harm or loss. An effective early warning system comprises four main elements: (1) knowledge of the risks based on the systematic collection of data and risk assessments; (2) analysis and forecasting; detection, monitoring, analysis and forecasting of the hazards and possible consequences; (3) dissemination and communication, of authoritative, timely, accurate and actionable warnings and associated information on likelihood and impact; (4) preparedness at all levels to respond to the warnings received.

However, gaps in legal, institutional and coordination frameworks can prevent the operationalization of EWS and the integration of risk information into decision-making across all sectors. To overcome these gaps, a collaborative effort began during a global consultation in November 2023, organized by FAO’s Emergency Prevention System (EMPRES) to develop a strategic framework for early warning of animal health threats.

In the next steps, the framework should undergo continuous development and review through a cooperative process, incorporating input from experts in early warning of animal health threats, as well as from decision-makers at the country level, who constitute the framework's target audience.

The participation of the Expert Advisory Group members to support the development of the Strategic Framework for Early Warning of Animal Health Threats is free of charge and they will be acknowledged in the published strategic framework, but there is no financial compensation for their involvement. Selected participants will receive further instructions by email.
