  • Do we pursue global food security better by supporting smallholder farmers, agro-pastoralists and pastoralists or commercial producers?
  • How can we make sure Livestock Keepers rights become a general broadly accepted principle?

The Community of Practice for Pro-poor Livestock Development and The Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition invite interested parties to discuss these and other questions related to the future of Livestock keepers.

The topic is raised by Ilse Koehler Rollefson from the League for Pastoral Peoples and Endogenous Livestock Development. Among the participants will be Antonio Rota from IFAD, Walter Mwasa from CARE International and Livestock experts from FAO.

Results of the debate will help with advocacy work and in preparation for the Convention on Biological Diversity 2010 at Nagoya. The main outcomes of the discussion will also be presented at the InterAgency Donor Livestock Group (IADG) Annual Meeting which will be hosted by IFAD in May 2010
