The Effect of Climate Change on Plant & Animal Health and Trade
The effects of climate change on the risks and patterns of plant and animal health, pest and disease dispersal is potentially huge and largely unanticipated. These effects include the direct consequences of emerging pests and diseases as well as indirect risks to agricultural productivity and trade.
These policy briefs were commissioned by TMSA, in support of the COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite's work on trade facilitation, for a side event of the COP17 Climate Change Conference in Durban 2011, on Climate Resilient Agriculture.
TMSA Case Story Series | Mozambique Fisheries Market Access
A TMSA Case Story | supporting Mozambique Fisheries to improve their EU market access through SPS compliance.
As a least developed country, Mozambique enjoys duty-free access to the EU under the Everything-but-Arms agreement, a Generalised System of Preference (GSP) scheme. While trade preferences such as these enhance the overall competitiveness of Mozambique in the EU market, it does not guarantee market access.
Development of the Inland Fisheries Export Sectors in Eastern and Southern Africa - Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary (SPS) and other Barriers
The ESA EPA Negotiating Group has requested assistance to prepare a road map to achieve the general policy statements which have been made in terms of development of inland fisheries export sectors, including aquiculture, with particular reference to Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary issues. This study aims to produce data which can inform the strategies and processes of the organisations and people engaged in the fisheries discussions in a practical way. It is already acknowledged that SPS issues are a major problem to the development of inland fisheries.
