Land O’Lakes International Development and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) are co-hosting a one-day learning event in Washington D.C. on October 17, Livestock Markets, Animal Source Foods and Human Nutrition: Considering Program Tensions, Maximizing Impact and Avoiding Harm. Due to popular demand, the sold-out seminar will also be offered as a webinar for virtual participation.
The seminar is aimed at bridging the gap between livestock ownership, market systems, and increased consumption of animal source foods (ASF) by rural and producer households for improved nutrition. Through presentations and facilitated discussions, speakers will evaluate the different livestock-to-nutrition pathways and unpack current programmatic evidence and research, explore the technical challenges, and spark debate on behavior change for the improvement of nutrition through livestock.
While the live seminar is sold out, virtual spaces are still available for online participation. Webinar participants can attend for all or part of the sessions. Click HERE to register for the online webinar. You will receive instructions via email after registration.
This seminar is part of a learning series supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-TOPS (Technical and Operational Performance Support) Small Grants Program (SGP) program and the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH), led by IFPRI.
