Electronic consultation on Integrated Crop-Livestock Systems for Development

FAO, IICA, IFAD and Embrapa invite interested individuals to participate in  electronic consultation on Integrated Crop-Livestock Systems for Development: The way forward for sustainable production intensification to be held during February 2010.  This consultation  will set the stage for a face-to-face workshop in Brazil to be held 23-26 March 2010.

The topics for discussion are:

  •  Promising Integrated Crop-Livestock Systems and Innovations for   Mainstreaming and Scaling Up (February 1-5);
  • Value Chain Dynamics and Players for Promising Crop-Livestock Systems (February 8-12);
  • Political Will, Policy and Institutional Support for Promising Crop Livestock Systems (February 15-19); and
  • Research and Knowledge Needs for Innovative Crop-Livestock Systems (February 22-26)

The consultation will address farm to landscape level crop-livestock integration in multiple agroecologies and will ensure that cross cutting themes around the roles of stakeholders (public sector, private sector, civil society), capturing public goods and incentives for action, and climate change are integral to the debate.
