Food Safety Risk Analysis Capacity Building Program in Latin America

Food Safety Risk Analysis Capacity Building Program in Latin America

The purpose of this PPG is to strengthen food safety risk analysis (FSRA) capacity of Latin American countries by sharing expertise and experiences through South-South cooperation.

The PPG will result in a project proposal focused on:

  • South-South cooperation to transfer knowledge and expertise on FSRA;
  • A hybrid FSRA learning model consisting of online courses focused on technical concepts, in-person training focused on the practical application of the technical concepts and a mentoring programme with follow-up actions to ensure adequate implementation and impact; and
  • In agreement with individual country needs, development and implementation of specific FSRA support projects/programmes aiming to modernise food inspection systems, conduct risk assessment studies and strengthen risk communication.
