Results Strengths : Funds would be available in cases of major emergencies under the Ministry of Finance, however, so far this mechanism has never been utilized by the VS Animal Health Compensatory Fund under MBN, currently aiding in VCF repair, also used for increased farmer awareness and surveillance programs Weaknesses : Prioritization of the use of the Animal Health Fund is under custody of the MBN, and not the VS. Therefore, the fund is not always addressing national needs, but more often MBN immediate needs. There is no evidence of such funds being used for compensation mechanisms. Supporting documentation (documents or photos):

Detailed findings during visit: Contingencies: In case of a major crisis, there is an adequate mechanism for addressing contingencies through requests made by the Minister of Agriculture through the Directorate of Emergency Management in the Ministry of Finance. The VS have so far not made use of such funds. However, it has been effectively used in cases of several floods and droughts.
