A pre-project was initiated in August 2020 in partnership with the Nigerian Ministry of Agriculture and the Nigerian Food and Drug Administration (under the Ministry of Health).
The pre-project is now completed, and will be entering into Phase I.
The overall objective of the project is a green transformation of Nigeria's livestock production. In this regard, the Nigerian authorities are focused on cattle farming.
The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration supports Nigeria with topics such as:
- Feed handling
- Animal registration
- Management of animal diseases
- Use of veterinary medicine and antibiotics
- Risk-based management of food safety and traceability.
These topics are part of Nigeria’s political ambitions to transform their livestock sector towards a more efficient and greener direction.
