Recommendations RSC | Five year action plan | Events

The Regional Steering Committees (RSCs) act as regional stakeholder platforms, bringing together the OIE Regional Commission, FAO Regional Representation and WHO Regional Office(s) with the leading regional technical and where appropriate economical organisations, country representatives and regional and international development partners. The RSCs provide a platform for exchange of information to avoid overlap and to look for synergies by encouraging the creation of regional alliances and partnerships and the definition of a common vision and subsequent action plan for the control of priority TADs in the region. The RSCs are also promoted for supporting the governance and coordination or  advising major regional or continental projects (for instance through back to back meetings as in the case of the Veterinary Governance project in Africa and the Highly Pathogenic and Emerging Diseases project in Asia).
