Safe Food, Fair Food team in Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal complete field data collection in small ruminant value chains

Safe Food, Fair Food

Due to the crisis in Mali, the rapid risk assessment on animal health and food safety in the small ruminant value chains which we initially planned to start in March 2013 in Mali, finally started in Senegal in June 2013. Scientists participating in this rapid risk assessment included Professor Bassirou Bonfoh, epidemiologist; Dr Dao Daouda, economist; Dr Gilbert Fokou, anthropologist; Dr Sylvain Traoré, microbiologist; Dr Prisca Ndour, veterinarian; Ms Bernadette Yougbaré and Mr Roland Konan, master students in the project. In each of the eight villages, the village veterinarian took part in this activity. Locally recruited field guides (one per village) and translators (one per village) were also involved.
