Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) presents a multidimensional threat to the achievement of the global sustainable development goals. Drug-resistant bacteria can circulate in human beings and animals, through food, water and the environment. Understanding the extent of AMR in livestock production and aquaculture is an important basis for driving actions and is crucial to measure impacts of initiatives made in addressing this problem.
