Farming for the future

Thursday, September 12 • 11:00 - 12:00

Owning livestock such as cows, chickens, yaks and llamas, can reduce poverty in rural families and grow economies in low- and middle-income countries.

Appolinaire Djikeng, who leads the Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics & Health at the University of Edinburgh, discloses how livestock farming impacts people, the planet and the processes required to achieve global sustainability.

With livestock farming under fire for its damaging effects on the environment, how can we improve processes so small holder farmers are part of the solution and not the problem.
