Reinforcement of animal health and disease control

In the Nordic-Baltic region veterinary contingency planning has been on the common agenda for some years and that experience can be used in a future cooperation in the whole Baltic Sea region. One example is simulation exercises that are considered as a very valuable tool for testing the contingency plans established for the control and eradication of rapid spreading animal diseases. The efforts made to facilitate training in the Nordic-Baltic region in the use of risk analysis and creation of networks for sharing experiences should be explored. In the event of an animal disease outbreak, the Baltic Sea region will be working on the intension to provide, within their resource capabilities, skilled and competent personnel to respond to the animal disease situation in the affected country. Expected Results: It is anticipated that the outcome of the project will be adopted in strategies and activities. This will strengthen the regions capacity to address global trends and to meet requirements in the context of a common market. Actions and experience of the Nordic Council of Ministers should therefore be exploited for further cooperation and development, including the Nordic-Baltic cooperation in this field.
