livestock productivity, human nutrition and incomes
Kathmandu, Nepal -- April 25-26, 2019
The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems at the University of Florida is hosting the Third Global Nutrition Symposium in Kathmandu, Nepal on April 25 and 26, 2019. This year’s theme is Extending Our Reach: Linking research to extension to improve livestock productivity, human nutrition and incomes. This Symposium will bring together ministers of agriculture and livestock production, livestock and nutrition researchers, top university administrators, extensionists, and policy-makers globally to discuss and develop actionable strategies to bridge the research and extension gap and to demonstrate how the production and consumption of nutritious animal-source foods (ASF) can result in improved nutrition, health, incomes, and livelihoods especially for vulnerable women and children. The Symposium will highlight the pathways for connecting research to extension and other advisory services in different countries to foster greater research delivery and diffusion through extension services in developing countries.
The organizing committee is pleased to release the Symposium’s call for poster abstracts. The poster session will serve an important function as it introduces the Symposium participants to a wide range of experiences particularly nutrition-sensitive livestock systems research and extension activities.
