In 2014, to mark 40 years of international research, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is facilitating a series of events that highlight the ways in which livestock research advances the global development agenda, specifically for sustainable food and nutritional security, economic well-being and healthy lives.
Under the theme ‘Livestock-based options for sustainable food and nutritional security and healthy lives’ the ILRI side event at the the Tropentag 2014 International Conference will highlight products of livestock research contributing to the global development agenda, from generating research products (performing) to targeting research investments and policymaking (informing) to reshaping whole livestock production systems (transforming).
The side event is from 1400-1530 on 18 September – see full details.
Participants will include ILRI partners and alumni from Germany and the wider European community.
This week, ILRI staff are participating in the Tropentag 2014 International Conference in Prague (17-19 September 2014). There is also a dedicated ‘ILRI@40’ side event on ‘Livestock-based options for sustainable food and nutritional security and healthy lives.’ See all the posters.
