GLOBAL AGENDA OF ACTION IN SUPPORT OF SUSTAINABLE LIVESTOCK SECTOR DEVELOPMENT o Sustainability: not a state but a continuous process of improvement o Livestock: Terrestrial and kept for food domesticated species o Sector approach: considering the diversity of production systems, involving the sector stakeholders o Development: improved resource use to support livelihoods, long-term food security and economic development
  9. 9. Developments so far o Consultation process started in 2010 (FAO COAG) Dialogue group: voluntary, improve sector performance o The Brasilia consensus First Multi-stakeholder platform meeting, May 2011 Endorsement of the Agenda’s nature o The Phuket Roadmap Second Multi-stakeholder platform meeting, December 2011 Endorsement of the Agenda’s focus o Interim Preparatory Committee meetings 2012: Endorsement of the Agenda’s functions o COAG endorsement of the Agenda: Rome, May 2012 o Focus Area Workshops, Rome, Seoul and Brasilia, Spring 2012 o Workshop Turning the Agenda into concrete actions o Rome, September 2012 o The Agenda Consensus Third multi-stakeholder platform meeting, Nairobi, January 2013

  15. 15. Functions of the partnership o Consult & Network To build consensus and share knowledge on technology, best practices, policies and institutional environments. o Analyze & Inform To better understand resource use issues, to develop harmonized methods to measure resource use efficiency and to identify entry points for improvements. o Guide & Pilot To provide strategic guidance on innovation and investments and to catalyze resource use efficient practices at scale.
  16. 16. Initial set up o Open Multi-Stakeholder Platform for consensus building on priority issues and actions o Guiding Group for overall direction, communication and stakeholder connection - only for signatories of the consensus o Focus Area groups to implement the partnership joint work programs (assessments and tools)- only for signatories of the consensus o Support Group(s) For coordination and consensus building, assistance and guidance, support to Focus Area groups and formation of ad hoc expert teams, communication strategy.
