Extending Our Reach:
Improving human nutrition and incomes through
effective livestock research and extension partnerships
The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems at the University of Florida, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), and Heifer International Nepal are hosting the Third Global Nutrition Symposium in Kathmandu, Nepal on April 25 and 26, 2019. This year’s theme is Extending Our Reach: Improving human nutrition and incomes through effective livestock research and extension partnerships. This Symposium will bring together livestock and nutrition researchers, extensionists, and policy-makers from West and East Africa and Asia to discuss and develop actionable strategies to connect research and extension. By bridging this gap, consumption and production of nutritious foods, such as animal-source foods, will increase resulting in improved livelihoods, nutrition, and incomes, especially for women and children. The Symposium will assess the research to extension pathways and consider research delivery and diffusion through extension services in developing countries.
At the third Global Nutrition Symposium, we aim to bring together the various stakeholders that make bridging the gap from livestock research to nutrition-sensitive livestock extension possible: government officials, deans from universities, researchers, extension and advisory services providers, among others.
