GOL Launches National Livestock Policy Hub

By Robert Dixon & Winnie S. T. Dixon

MONROVIA, March 19 (LINA) –Liberia, through the Ministry of Agriculture, has joined other countries in the sub-region to launch the National Livestock Policy Hub.

The launch was held Wednesday at the Ministry of Agriculture, at the start of a two-day workshop for the Veterinary Governance in Africa Programme and the National Livestock Policy HUB Inauguration and International Meeting, on National Sanitary and Phyto-sanitary Standard Guidelines.

Deputy Agriculture Minister for Technical Services, Dr. Zizi Zubahyea Subah, who served as chief launcher, expressed joy for the launch of the hub and stressed the need to fully implement the policy.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Minister Subah then pledged the Agriculture Ministry’s preparedness to support the National Livestock Policy Hub.

Also speaking, Dr. Henri Kabore, head of the African Union Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resource (AU-IBAR), who is also Regional Coordinator for the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), hailed the launch of the hub as a milestone.

He said the Reinforcing Veterinary Governance (VET-Gov) program’s main purpose is to enhance the institutional capacity of livestock policies, strategies and legislation formulation.

Dr. Kabore said the program also foresees the support of the adoption processes of these policies, strategies and legislation to guarantee the internationalization of the new approaches into institutional framework.

He said, to meet this purpose, the program is promoting the establishment and strengthening of the Livestock Policy Hub at the national and regional levels, following the success of this concept, achieved through the Livestock policy initiative of the Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD-LPI) implemented in East Africa.

According to Dr. Kabore, inclusive approach involving stakeholders from government and civil society has proven to be effective.
