Pan African Animal Resources Yearbook 2008

dc.contributor.authorAfrican Union Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources
dc.description.abstractThe Pan-African Animal Resources Yearbook (PARYB) will continue to evolve with its resignation as to cover all areas of Animal Resources in Africa instead of only Animal Health related issues. Thus more data and information on Animal production, trade and Marketing, Fisheries and Aquaculture etc will continue to be added to the contents of the book. This transformation started since the last the last three previous editions of the book. Furthermore, with the gradual expansion in the scope and coverage of the Animal Resources Information System (ARIS) and the addition of more operational modules to the system as well as its acceptance as a continental reporting and database by MSs and RECs, more authentic data is being generated directly from Member States of the African Union (AU-MSs) at both national and sub-national levels and shared to AU-IBAR and the Regional Economic Communities. The current edition of the PARYB, in addition to previous areas of coverage, includes information on Fish health, broader information on animal breed and genetics instead of the traditional animal population figures, trade and marketing information as well as information on policy analysis that affects the animal resources sector on the African continent.en

  • Pan African Animal Resources Yearbook (PARYB) [13]
    Since its creation in 1951, the African Union – Interafrican Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR), then known as Interafrican Bureau of Epizootic Diseases (IBEC) - had published a yearbook to share sanitary information and promote transparency on animal health matters in Africa. The first edition of the “Bulletin of Epizootics in Africa”, the precursor to the PARYB, which was published in March 1953 advocates for transparency in disease reporting in line with international standards, an obligation that is still being expounded to date.
