GALVmed – the Global Alliance for Livestock Veterinary Medicines – just published an ‘Impetus Strategy Paper’ that puts forward ideas on the directions Africa’s livestock sector needs to take to maximise prospects for African livestock farmers, based on evidence and opinion from Sub Saharan Africa.
To validate and extend the discussions, GALVmed has set up an e-discussion where livestock experts can give their opinion about the ideas contained in the paper.
The e-discussion agenda is as follows:
- 14th –27th March: The State of Africa’s livestock sector;
- 28th March – 14th April: Improving animal health services for the rural farmers;
- 15th – 28th April: Feeding Africa’s Ruminants for food security and prosperity;
- 29th April- 16th May: Small livestock farmers increasing their income – trade and market access.
