7 OIE 5 th Strategic Plan: Key concepts 7 To improve animal health and welfare worldwide Public Good concept One Health concept Good Veterinary Governance Global, regional and national animal health strategies and programs
8 OIE 5 th Strategic Plan: Key concepts (2) 8 Standard Setting OIE is the WTO reference organisation for sciencebased standards in international trade, disease surveillance and control methods, and quality of Veterinary Services; Animal welfare: OIE leadership since 2002 Animal production food safety (liaison with Codex Alimentarius Commission)
9 Why animal welfare intergovernmental standards 9 Animal health is a key component of animal welfare Veterinarians cannot ignore animal welfare. They must be key players
10 OIE 5 th Strategic Plan: Key concepts (3) 10 Quality of veterinarians Veterinarians play an essential role in public good activities Good governance of public and private components Veterinary Services Aquatic Animal Health Services Guidelines for quality of veterinary education Capacity building Role of Veterinary Statutory Body Public-private partnerships.
11 OIE Strategic partnerships 11 The OIE has agreements with many international organisations that are active in animal welfare e.g: Commonwealth Veterinary Association (CVA) Fédération Equestre International (FEI) International Dairy Federation (IDF) International Meat Secretariat (IMS) International Council for Laboratory Animal Science (ICLAS) International Egg Commission (IEC) International Poultry Council (IPC) International Air Transport Association (IATA) Safe Supply of Affordable Food Everywhere (SSAFE) World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) World Veterinary Association
12 Animal welfare in the global trade context 12
13 Global issues and trends relevant to animal production There is a massive increase in demand for high quality animal protein, influenced by: World population growth: +1 billion people by 2050; Focus on developing and transition countries. Shift from poverty to middle-class (1 billion by 2050); Increase in the number of daily meals and the protein intake of individuals; Projections indicate that demand for animal protein (milk, eggs, meat) may increase by more than 60% in a near future 13
14 Animal health issues Globalisation, climate change and human intervention are driving the expansion of pathogens and vectors into new geographic areas and animal production sectors It is estimated that animal diseases cause the loss of up to 20% of animal production globally High food prices and food shortages are of global concern With more than one billion poor livestock producers, improving animal health and food production are key tools in the struggle to alleviate poverty, while livestock represent their only capital
15 Multilateral trade policy framework Under the World Trade Organization SPS Agreement, the health measures in the Terrestrial and Aquatic Animal Health Codes are legally based references for international trade in animals and animal products The SPS Agreement does not include animal welfare rather, some measures could be covered by the WTO Technical Barriers to Trade ( TBT ) Agreement and some provisions of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) 15 15
16 Multilateral trade policy framework The consistency of animal welfare measures with the TBT and GATT provisions has not yet been fully tested (one dispute is pending in WTO) In the past decade, measures relating to animal welfare (e.g. on livestock production, slaughter and transport) have had increasing influence on trade in animal products Including in bilateral trade agreements And in some cases drawing on the WTO SPS principle of equivalence 16 16
17 Multilateral trade policy framework Private sector animal welfare specifications (especially on livestock production systems) have increasingly come to bear Driven by the concerns of consumers and food companies in wealthy countries With little reference to WTO SPS principles Causing concerns about science-base, fairness, transparency and certification costs, especially for developing countries
18 OIE Achievements
19 Global standards - Terrestrial Code Since 2001, when Members mandated the OIE as the global leader on animal welfare, many global standards have been adopted: Guiding Principles for animal welfare (2004); Transport of animals by land, sea and air (2005); Slaughter for human consumption (2005) Killing for disease control (2005) Control of stray dog populations (2009) Animals used in research and education (2010) General provisions for animal production systems Beef cattle production systems (2012).
20 Global standards - Terrestrial Code 2012 saw progress on standards for animal welfare in livestock production systems Article General Provision for Production Systems Chapter 7.9 on Beef cattle production systems..and further work completed on the important topic of animals used in research and education: Article Transportation of laboratory animals (2012).
21 Global standards - Aquatic Code Standard setting for aquatic animals has been slower and to date has focused on farmed fish: Guiding Principles (2008); Transport (2009); Slaughter for human consumption (2010) Killing for disease control (2010).
22 Guidelines and recommendations In addition to publishing standards, which are formally adopted using the OIE democratic and transparent procedures, the OIE also produces guidance and recommendations for the implementation of standards, e.g.: The OIE Discussion paper on the animal welfare related provisions of Islamic Law encourages National Veterinary Services to enter into dialogue with relevant religious authorities with the objective of improving animal welfare globally for the implementation of standards ious_slaughter/a_religious_slaughter.pdf
23 Laboratory animal welfare The use of laboratory animals makes a significant contribution to medical and veterinary research contributing to human and animal health and welfare. The OIE supports such use under appropriate conditions of animal health and welfare management and respect of the internationally accepted Three Rs, as outlined in the Terrestrial Code. In 2009, the OIE published a discussion paper on air transport of laboratory animals IATA/ENG_IATA_paper_2009.pdf
24 Private standards and specifications GS 2008 featured a Technical Item on the implications of private standards for trade and a Resolution calling on the OIE to work with relevant public and private international organisations to help ensure the consistency of private standards (health and welfare) with those of the OIE In 2011 the OIE signed an agreement with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and exchanged letters with GlobalGAP, setting out terms of cooperation. In 2012, the OIE agreed to provide input to the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) s development of animal welfare Technical Specifications On the basis that this activity should promote and not conflict with OIE standards 24 24
25 OIE Global conferences 10 years ago, animal welfare was a new topic for the OIE..Member countries had widely varying perspectives and experience, based on their individual economic, legal, cultural, religious and social circumstances The First OIE Global Conference on Animal Welfare (Paris, 2004) helped to raise awareness and improve understanding of the benefits of global standards on the part of OIE Member countries Leading to the adoption of three new standards in 2005.
26 The Second OIE Global Conference on Animal Welfare 'Putting the Standards to Work (Cairo, 2008) resulted in strong endorsement of the OIE s work on animal welfare and the fundamental role of national Veterinary Services (public and private sector) and of the veterinary profession in improving animal welfare. This is reflected in the OIE PVS Tool which, since 2010, includes specific critical competencies of Veterinary Services on animal welfare.
27 The theme ``Implementing the OIE standards - addressing regional expectations`` highlights the value of coordination and collaboration with and between Member countries The objective is to support the implementation of the OIE standards, with particular attention to relevant strategies and tools, including at the regional level. The OIE also aims to raise the profile of the standards in general and To encourage Veterinary Services and the veterinary profession to take a lead role in improving animal welfare.
28 Strengthening Veterinary Services Capacity building focus on OIE Delegates, designated Focal Points, and technical capacity Regular seminars for newly assigned OIE Delegates; Establishment of topic-specific national Focal Points in each OIE Member country ongoing seminars; Network of OIE Reference Centres, including animal welfare collaborating centres in three regions Twinning initiative to enhance technical capacity in regions where there are few or no such centres OIE Scientific and normative publications.
29 Strengthening Veterinary Services The OIE PVS Pathway is a continuous process that aims for sustainable improvement in Veterinary Services and Aquatic Animal Health Services capacity to meet international standards, providing long term efficiency and effectiveness
30 Strengthening Veterinary Services The OIE PVS Tool Strengthening VS and AAHS through the conduct of missions and follow up activities, including official agreements and twinnings Building support from international donors including Foundations Promoting consensus between governments and donors Advocacy for the key role of veterinarians in society.

33 OIE initiatives on veterinary education and good governance of the profession To provide leadership on animal welfare, veterinarians in the public and private sector need a sound education that provides both technical knowledge and an appropriate ethical framework OIE global initiatives aim to support improved quality of education and, through strengthening the role of the Veterinary Statutory Body, good governance of the profession. In addition to holding two Global Conferences on Veterinary Education, the OIE has produced recommendations on Core competencies of day 1 veterinary graduates which include animal welfare
34 priorities 34
35 priorities 35 The OIE will continue to show global leadership on animal welfare working to set up and update standards to convince countries and private sector organisations to respect the OIE standards and other activities that reflect the priorities of Member countries standard setting priorities include production systems for broiler chickens, dairy cattle and pigs and subsequently a standard for working animals.
36 priorities 36 Advising and supporting Members in implementing the standards is a top priority. Advocating for VS and AAHS to secure political support and committment by decision makers Solidarity by providing mechanisms to help on request secure financial and technical support to Members Promoting appropriate alliances between the public and private sector, eg SSAFE, ISO, GFSI.
37 priorities Veterinary education and the role of the national Veterinary Statutory Body (VSB) Following the recommendations of OIE global conferences held in 2009 and 2011, the OIE is Developing a basic minimum curriculum for veterinarians (to be finalised by May 2013) Providing a Twinning framework for veterinary education establishments, and for Veterinary Statutory Bodies, based on the successful OIE Laboratory Twinning model 37
38 priorities 38 Veterinary education and the role of the national Veterinary Statutory Body (VSB) Convening a 3rd Global Conference on Veterinary Education and the role of the Veterinary Statutory Body - "Ensuring excellence and ethics of the veterinary profession«(fos do Iguaçu, Brazil, 3-5 December 2013)
39 priorities 39 Recognising the value of collaboration and networking at the regional level, the OIE has an ongoing programme of National Focal Point seminars, including interaction with private sector and regional organisations the next animal welfare seminars will take place in Beirut, December 2012, and Korea, August The OIE supports the development of regional animal welfare strategies as appropriate to each region.
