Innovations to Harness the Potential of African Animal Agriculture in a Globalizing World
Date: 15th–19th October 2018
Location: Accra, Ghana
The overall objective of the conference is to provide an opportunity for scientists and the broader stakeholders in the animal agriculture sector to discuss the potential role of innovation in animal agriculture to improve the livelihoods of Africans. The broad objective of the conference will be met through discussions of a series of papers, organized under sub-themes, to answer the broader question: How can Africa organize herself to address challenges and, at the same time, take advantage of opportunities presented by a globalizing world?, Specifically, what are the technical and institutional innovations from the global North and South, which Africa can take advantage of, and the best mechanism through which such approach could be achieved.
