ONE conference 2022: TACKLING ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE IN FOOD PRODUCING ENVIRONMENTS

June 23

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is major public health threat globally. The role of natural and food-producing environments in the emergence, selection, dissemination and ultimately transmission of AMR has received much less attention than the direct selection and transmission within and between humans and animals. However, the need to tackle the AMR problem within the One Health approach has been internationally acknowledged and is included in the EU AMR Action plans. Future changes in food production to comply with the EU Green Deal/Farm to Fork Strategy, climate change and other socioeconomic factors will have an impact on the role played by the food-producing environments on the emergence and transmission of AMR. There are large data gaps in the magnitude and direction of these effects. In this session, we aim to discuss the potential consequences that those changes could have on the emergence and spread of AMR through food-producing environments and how this could be considered for future AMR risk management. This will be achieved by: (1) providing a general overview on current AMR issues of public health relevance linked to the food-producing environment and how the EU Health-related agencies are supporting European efforts; (2) exploring how new agricultural practices and climate change may influence AMR linked to environmental sources in different food producing systems; (3) identifying areas/gaps needed to be addressed for better preparedness; (4) discussing possibilities to improve the sharing of data and expertise, breaking regulatory silos to ensure a more holistic One Health approach; and (5) making recommendations for future action.
