Mongolian government representatives and FAO organized a two-day workshop on 07-08 Oct 2021 to present the results, lessons and recommendations to the STDF supported project on Animal Identification and Registration Systems (AIRS) in Mongolia.
During the event, experts, government and international organizations representatives also shared their experiences on livestock identification and traceability systems and other SPS-related capacity building initiatives on the livestock sector, including in Africa and the Asia Pacific region.
The pilot project will “road-test” an improved “Animal Identification and Registration System” (AIRS) in Mongolia, which is essential to promote export of livestock and livestock products. Animal identification and registration is also the foundation for addressing and managing animal health issues (including zoonoses).
