The aim of the British Colonial Office was to ensure that colonial co-operation in Africa produced practical measures to bring benefits to Africans. However, colonial officials in Britain were undoubtedly aware of the problems of implementing new policies in Africa. In 1946, therefore, the first steps were taken towards implementing the conclusions of the November 1945 talks on Anglo-French co-operation. In May, an Anglo-French veterinary conference was held in Dakar, the prime object of which was to co-ordinate attempts to eradicate rinderpest. This required simultaneous vaccination programmes for trade stock and closer cross-frontier contacts between veterinary personnel. The aim was stock improvement to meet local needs, although controls on nomadic stock were impossible to enforce. The difficulties on both sides of the border were shortages of equipment, materials, and trained personnel.
