AVSF invites you to attend a series of discussions featuring French and African livestock farmers. The events will be held between October 13 and 17. It will be a great chance to get together with others and discuss how to produce and eat healthier.
Five international discussions between French and African livestock farmers
AVSF will be welcoming a group of Malian and Nigerian livestock farmers to France from October 13 to 17, 2012. Their visit to France will be an occasion for them to meet and talk to French smallholder livestock farmers about the problems they face with regard to climate change – for example, the ways in which climate change impacts how they manage their livestock, ways to adapt, etc.
Five dates to remember
Conferences will also be held to address the role that livestock farmers and consumers both play in the fight to curb climate change:
- In Valence, at the ”Le Valentin” agricultural high-school – October 15, at 8 p.m.
- In Marcy l’Étoile, at the Vetagrosup vetrinary school – October 17, at 5:15 p.m.
A European network serving a global cause
These events are part of a broader European project led by AVSF that aims to educate people about development, with a special focus on ”smallholder livestock farming and climate change.” The project is carried out in partnership with the European Commission, the French Development Agency, and the Rhône-Alpes Region. These meetings are made possible thanks to the support of the AFDI and the Résagri of the Rhône-Alpes Regional Chamber of Agriculture.
