Land O’Lakes International Development and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) have announced a webinar option for the upcoming "Animal Source Foods for Nutrition Impact: Evidence and Good Practices for Informed Project Design" workshop.

This one-day event will be held on the ILRI campus in Nairobi, Kenya, from 8:30am to 5:00pm Thursday, May 4. While in-person participation is limited due to space constraints, registration is open to attend the webinar, which will stream from approximately 8:45AM to 5PM East Africa Time/6:45AM-3PM GMT.

A detailed agenda will be shared with webinar registrants prior to the event. Sessions will include:

1)     Why animal source foods (ASF) are critical for nutrition, especially during the first 1000 days;

2)     Overview of the pathways of impact of livestock programs on household nutrition;

3)     Presentation of an upcoming ILRI-sponsored review of the global evidence linking ASF and nutrition; and

4)     Practical field experience illustrating the impact of livestock (poultry & dairy) interventions on household nutrition.

Speakers include Jimmy Smith, John Ellenberger, Delia Grace, Paula Dominguez-Salas, Jennifer Lane, Robyn Alders, and Carmen Jaquez.   

This event is designed for development practitioners and focused on sharing evidence and best practices to inform project design and approaches for improving the nutrition of women and children through animal source foods.
