Antimicrobial resistance;linkages between humans, livestock and water in periurban areas
The growing, increasingly urbanized and richer world-population is demanding more and more animal-based source foods. Peri-urban livestock farming in low-income countries and emerging economies benefits of being close to urban markets, but this creates a need to intensify production in order to use scarce natural resources –including water -better. Another aspect of the farming intensification is the increased use of antimicrobial pharmaceutical to avoid production losses from animal diseases. Therefore it is an assumed high priority setting for development to reduce the excessive use of antimicrobials in livestock and water respectively to prevent further emergence of AMR. In urban and peri urban agriculture it may be difficult to use manure on fields and waste products are often flushed away. Resistant bacteria has been found in urban streams and water sources and pose a risk for humans and animals. Any solutions to the problem with AMR require a holistic global multisector and multidisciplinary approach. Presentations from animal, health and water professionals and international experts will be held and these will be reflected upon by practitioners, policymakers and the audience.
