Economic consequences of Foot-and-Mouth Disease on traditional livestock-dependent communities of northern Tanzania
MetadataShow full item record
While available literature on Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) economic impacts has looked at costs incurred due to outbreaks at an aggregate level, microeconometric studies investigating impacts of such outbreaks on individual livestock-owning households are severely limited. The primary objective of this study was to quantify economic consequences of FMD on traditional livestock production systems in Tanzania (including agro-pastoral and pastoral households, and rural small holders).
