Impacts of helminth disease and climate change on livestock health, together with development of control strategies such as novel vaccine and diagnostic - ERA-NET ICRAD 2023

The overall objective of this research call is to increase understanding and preparedness for impending effects on animal health and the livestock industry caused by climate change and spread of anthelmintic resistance. This includes basic research to better understand mechanisms behind these topics or applied development of detection, management, intervention and prevention strategies.

The three main objectives of this call are therefore as follows:

Axe 1 : Improve understanding of anthelmintic resistance and develop intervention tools to prevent it: research into mechanisms of anthelmintic resistance as well as resistance development in livestock, improved diagnosis, and management strategies to conserve the efficacy of current anthelmintics. Development of modern intervention strategies, such as anthelmintic vaccines is also an objective.

Axe 2 : Better understand impacts of climate change on animal health: how could climate change lead to pathogen emergence, re-emergence and spread. What are potential impacts on transmission of disease, and how it can change stress-related susceptibility of livestock to disease.

Axe 3 : Develop detection and prevention platforms: supporting the development of novel diagnostic and vaccine technology platforms which will ensure preparedness to the impacts of climate change, anthelmintic resistance, and livestock health in general.
