Event Details

Organizer logos

Animal source foods (ASF includes meat, milk, eggs, fish/invertabrates) are rich in nutrients that improve nutritional outcomes in vulnerable households, especially for women and children.  Yet livestock development programming infrequently targets, measures or demonstrates nutrition results.  Join us as we bring together experts in livestock, economics, gender and nutrition to:

  • Review the livestock-nutrition pathways;
  • Demonstrate how animal source foods can contribute to nutritional outcomes; and
  • Dig into the evidence of when and how nutrition results are achieved in livestock programming.

Evidence presented will come primarily from research and development programs carried out in East and Southern Africa.


Webinar Agenda:

8:45 - 9:00

This webinar is the broadcast of a day-long in-person learning event held at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in Nairobi, Kenya.  Co-hosted by ILRI and Land O'Lakes International Development, this interactive workshop is the culimination of a year-long 'Livestock and Household Nutrition Learning Series'.  

On-line participants will be able to ask questions and engage in the discussion in real-time while watching speaker's presentations.  Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the complex issues associated with increasing consumption of animal source foods and tangible advice to better support nutrition-sensitive livestock programming. A full agenda and links to the webinar will shared with registrants 10 days prior to the event.

The webinar will be recorded and made accessible for on-demand viewing after the event.  Information on how to access the recorded webinar will be disseminated through industry and organizational listserves.  The Livestock and Household Nutrition Learning Series is partially funded by a Small Grant from the USAID/Food for Peace-funded Technical and Operational Performance Support (TOPS) Program.TOPS Logo
