Presentation Transcript


The World Bank and its partners are pleased to offer a series of inter-regional knowledge and learning seminars through the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) on issues that are of high priority when dealing with Avian and Human Influenza (AHI) preparedness. The Global Development Learning Network is a partnership of more than 100 Distance Learning Centers that use advanced information and communications technologies to facilitate knowledge exchange and have the skills and experience to connect organizations and communities working in development in a timely and cost-effective manner.The seminars will provide for an exchange of knowledge, the sharing of experiences and good practices and lessons that have been learned. All information and resources that are developed for use in these seminars will be made available to the Bank and its partners for application and use, as appropriate. It is intended that this series will better enable the Bank and its partners to strengthen their approach to knowledge and capacity building on AHI issues around the world.

The seminar will be led by co-authors from the interagency team comprising of World Bank, FAO, OiE, and the IFPRI that developed the “Enhancing Control of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Developing Countries through Compensation” report. The co-authors will present and discuss the key findings of the report, including (a) The Identification of Beneficiaries; (b) Establishing Losses; (c) Setting the Level and Timeliness of Compensation; (d) Promoting Awareness, Communication and Capacity Building; (e) Organizing Payment and Accountability; and (f) The Way Forward. The seminar will provide an opportunity for countries, agencies and donors to engage in a substantive discussion around some of the main issues arising in this complex policy area. Select countries will be invited to contribute their experience, in addition to representatives from civil society, the donor community, NGOs, and government and technical agencies.
