The African Union Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) in partnership with Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) with financial support from the United States Agency for International for Development / East Africa Mission (USAID/EA) are implementing the Standard Methods and Procedures in Animal Health Project (SMP-AH). The main aim of the project is to reduce poverty, and enhance and integrate regional economic growth in the IGAD region through improved access of live animal and animal products to regional and international markets. Its main focus is on supporting harmonization and coordination of the control of trade-related TADs in the region. 

One of the objectives of the SMP-AH project is to build capacity of the Veterinary Services to better manage the control of Trans-boundary Diseases (TADs). Accordingly, twenty five (25) veterinary officers from Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda undertook a training programme on Management Development skills at Kenya School of Government in Nairobi, Kenya.

The training commenced on February 14th January 2014 and ran in three phases, namely, phase I:  13th January 2014 to 28th February 2014; phase II: 3rd March 2014 to 30th March 2014 (5 Weeks)  of workplace assignment and implementation of the Personal Action Plan  (PAP) and phase III: 31st  March 2014 and participants graduated on 8th May 2014.

The training brought together middle-level technical staff from the departments of veterinary services with the aim of equipping  them with knowledge and skills that would enable them address administrative and management challenges associated with  delivery of animal health services to a variety of stakeholders, especially regarding the control of TADs across the region. Topics such as negotiation, influencing and persuasion skills; performance management; management and leadership; finance for non-finance and managing donor funds; project development and management; result based project monitoring and evaluation; and training of trainers for quality service delivery were the key components of the course modules.
