The Livestock Antimicrobial Partnership, LAMP, is an action network that works with tackling microbial resistance by drawing on practical experience and knowledge from its partners in different parts of the world.

LAMP is an action network within the Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock, which is a partnership that brings together different stakeholders in the livestock sector to tackle antimicrobial resistance.

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 antimicrobial resistance.  As a complement, the LAMP within the Global Agenda brings together different stakeholders in the livestock sector to tackle antimicorbial resistance by drawing on practical experience and knowledge from its partners in different parts of the world.

Reported good practices to reduce antimicrobial resistance by supporting healthy and productive livestock

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.
