Livestock for African livelihoods: Science, data & innovation for a healthy future

Livestock Research in Africa

Livestock play a central role in the daily lives of people across Africa. In fact it’s seen as a pathway out of poverty by the likes of Bill Gates, the UK Department for International Development and many not for profit organisations. But animal diseases and low productivity remain a central challenge, preventing many livestock keepers from fulfilling their potential. 

 

Edinburgh-based researchers are working closely with African partners to develop and test data-driven approaches and innovations that will improve livestock health, close the productivity gap, and increase incomes and opportunities for livestock smallholders. 

 

Join us to learn about challenges and progress to date via posters and photos from the field. This will be accompanied by a coffee and networking session to allow people to connect and discuss ideas and collaborations.
