Abstract: Research studies worldwide show that due to different factors as climate change, poverty, urbanization, etc., there is a tendency of increasing the frequency and severity of both natural and man-made disasters. As the occurrence of natural disasters is a consequence of various preconditions, this work focuses on biological hazards which lead to epidemics and pandemics (including epizootics and panzootics). An analysis is made of legislative and official documents such as recommendations, strategies, regulations, etc. (from the international, European and Bulgarian legislative framework) with emphasis on reducing risks in the veterinary field in Bulgaria. Some suggestions are given for improvement of the systems for risk and disaster management of veterinary activities in the country.
Keywords: natural disasters, biological hazards, risk communication, veterinary medicine
