LAMP – livestock antimicrobial partnership

Addressing antimicrobial resistance by supporting healthy and productive livestock

On October 5th, 2016, the UN General Assembly adopted a UN Resolution on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). This political declaration calls upon WHO, FAO and OIE, other relevant UN agencies, development banks and international organizations and other relevant stakeholders across different sectors, to coordinate their planning and actions under a One-Health approach. In the Livestock sector FAO, OIE and the World bank have all overarching activities relating to policies and regulations in order to curb the global emergence of AMR. As a complement, the Global Agenda brings together different stakeholders in the livestock sector to tackle AMR by drawing on practical experience and knowledge from its different kind of partners in different parts of the world.

LAMP acts for achieving a prudent and effective use of antimicrobials by focusing on good practices within the areas of 1) incentives for change, 2) education and training, 3) animal management and livestock husbandry systems. LAMP collects the good practices from different parts of the various livestock sectors and from different stakeholders, analyze and synthesize them before they are piloted or tested.
