Shepherds from several countries in Europe are congregating at the Documenta in Kassel in the evening of June 23rd with the goal of establishing a European Shepherds Network. The meeting is supported by LPP.
LPP and LIFE Network attended the 23rd meeting of the Commission on Agriculture (CoAg) at the FAO to make an intervention about the Global Agenda of Action towards sustainable livestock sector development (GAA). The Statement made the point that small-scale livestock keepers, representing the largest stakeholder group in livestock policy processes, must be represented in the GAA and that this would require funding, communication and capacity-building.
LPP is pleased to announce a conference about the future of livestock keeping that will be held in Bonn on 6-7th September. Join us as livestock keepers from around the world discuss with policy and decision makers about their role in the future of livestock production.
In a short film, Ilse Köhler-Rollefson introduces the work and rationale of LPP and how it tries to link the situation of local livestock keepers with the global livestock policy scenario. Watch the film here.
