Item Usage Stats
This document presents a global plan for the proposed two years extension of the Tanzania component of the Pan-African Programme for the Control of Epizootics (PACE-TZ). PACE-TZ, together with 28 other African country programmes, is funded by the European Union through the European Development Fund and counter part funding by respective governments. The Country programmes are coordinated at regional level by the African Union Inter-African Bureau of Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) under an extension financial agreement. The overall objective of PACE-TZ programme is to contribute towards relieving poverty of those involved in the livestock farming sector. The purpose of this programme is strengthening the capacity at national level to assess the technical and economic aspects of animal diseases and generate proper programmes for their control, and safeguarding animal health in the country against major epizootics. Specific objectives are 1. Eradication of Rinderpest and Control of other epizootic diseases 2. Strengthening of surveillance to support policy formulation for the control of major epizootics and better access to global livestock markets. Expectations from these objectives are that by the end of project life, Tanzania will have been certified as free from Rinderpest Disease, at least 80% of the Districts will be submitting accurate outbreak and regular reports to the DVS and the DVS will be analysing them and using their results to plan disease control and to meet international reporting obligations. Animal health service outlets in rural areas will have increased and disease prevalence will have been significantly reduced. The total cost of the Extension Global Plan is TZS 2,017,190,000.00 (Euro 1,461,732) of which TZS 1,166,048.00 (Euro 844,962.00) will come from EDF and TZS 85,142,000.00 (Euro 616,770.00) will come from the Government of Tanzania (GOT). The European Union through the European Development Fund has committed Euro 3,323,285.00 to Tanzania country programme. At the end of year 3, it is expected to disburse Euro 2,003,705.11 for this programme. The Extension Global Plan will utilize part of the remaining balance of Euro 845,000. GOT will contribute to the funding of this programme by directly allocating money to PACE project account as counterpart funding and indirectly through payment of salaries to staff that are implementing programme activities and allocating funds for other charges in its recurrent and development budgets for implementation of programme related activities.
