FAO-Iran Tackling ESM

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is to assist Iran with treating Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS) in cultured shrimps via its Technical Cooperation Program (TCP), the head of Iran Veterinary Organization announced on Tuesday.
In 2012, FAO targeted an emergency project through its Technical Cooperation Program (TCP) to better understand acute hepatopancreatic necrosis syndrome (AHPNS), commonly known as early mortality syndrome (EMS) and improve on-farm biosecurity and strengthen shrimp farmers ability to deal with disease outbreaks.
The problem of EMS will be hopefully sorted out with the signed joint plan between Iran and FAO, Mehdi Khalaj said.
The envoy of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Rimond Nakozi, met the Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, on Saturday to strengthen the bilateral cooperation in regional projects and exchange information as well as materializing their long-term joint plans in the agriculture sector.
FAO is a subsidiary of the United Nations (UN) and its main objective is to achieve food security for all to make sure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives.
The FAO’s three stated goals are the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; the elimination of poverty and the driving forward of economic and social progress for all. They also work on sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, air, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of present and future generations.
