|dc.description.abstract||The European Commission has supported the continent-wide fight against rinderpest, through
the Pan African rinderpest Campaign (PARC). This project has had considerable success and
the disease now appears to be restricted to two main foci, namely, southern Sudan and
southern Somalia, two countries affected by chronic civil unrest and insecurity.
The PARC project ended on 31 October 1999, after thirteen years of successful
implementation. The European Union and the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) have
developed a new programme, the Pan African Programme for the Control of Epizootics
(PACE).PACE will build on the achievements of PARC to finally eradicate rinderpest and to
set up a Pan African network for the control of epizootics.
This document describes the work programme for the Somali PACE Component for the first
full year of PACE, which will start on 13tof May 2000 and end on 30thof April 2001.||
