FAO is conducting a series of knowledge-rich webinars on a monthly basis as part of the Progressive Management Pathway for Terrestrial Animal Biosecurity Community of Practice. These webinars will cover a host of topics related to the progressive improvement of terrestrial animal biosecurity, involving speakers and participants from multiple disciplines and backgrounds.

The upcoming webinar will showcase the approach taken by FAO to improve veterinary paraprofessional (VPP) services and outreach to female smallholder farmers. Gender-disaggregated assessments were conducted to understand extension service needs of female farmers and challenges for female VPPs. The work included the development of gender-sensitive biosecurity plans. The approach has been piloted in South Africa, Uganda and Nigeria.
