Building Government and Community Capacity to Stop Avian Influenza in NepalRATIONALE
Winrock is continuing work toward community capacity building and stakeholder preparation around Avian Influenza.
This workplan for the Nepal Avian Influenza – Community Monitoring and Capacity Building (AI-CMCB) Program is to be implemented jointly with the Department of Livestock Services (DLS). The goal is to assist in the rapid and effective implementation of the Nepal Avian Influenza Prevention and DLS programs. Given the high probability that Nepal will face an outbreak in the near term, this project represents an important input to assist the DLS. The proposed Nepal AI program will work in five eastern districts where risks are highest due to recent AI outbreaks in Bangladesh and India.
This program represents a modest but targeted and strategic assistance package to help the Government of Nepal (GoN) to rapidly develop its response and capacities to meet a critical threat to Nepal's well being. The sustainability of this program is ensured through building government and community capacity.
