Session V Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is a highly contagious viral disease affecting small ruminants and threatening farmers' food security and sustainable livelihoods across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. After the successful eradication of Rinderpest, PPR was targeted as the next animal disease to be eradicated. Nonetheless, in the last two decades, PPR has continued spreading, including into countries where it had never been reported and in others that had already been officially recognised as PPR-free. In the Black Sea Basin, the disease is endemic in Turkey and emerged for the first time in Georgia and Bulgaria. These and other occurrences led to increasing concerns over the reintroduction of PPR into Europe. In this project, we aim to identify areas with a high risk of PPR spread within the Black Sea region.
