The Seventh All Africa Conference on Animal Agriculture



The All Africa Society for Animal Production (AASAP) is an association of individuals, groups and institutions which have interest in the art, science and practice of animal sciences relevant for animal agriculture. These include animal nutrition and feeding, genetics and breeding, health, welfare, and other aspects of husbandry. The AASAP is a member of the World Association of Animal Production (with its secretariat in Rome). The main objective of AASAP is to facilitate the use of technical, policy and institutional innovations to address current and emerging challenges of African animal agriculture through engagement of communities of practitioners in Africa and beyond.

The All Africa Conference on Animal Agriculture (AACAA) is the main mechanism through which the AASAP objective is met – i.e. providing a forum for stakeholders – professionals and other practitioners – to get together and share views on issues germane to animal agriculture. The  AACAA is held every four years. The theme of each such conference is chosen based on felt needs at the time. The theme of the 7th AACAA – to be held in Ghana, 2018 – is: Innovations to Harness the Potential of African Animal Agriculture in a Globalizing World. The key words in this theme are secure future, innovations and globalizing world.

The overall objective of the conference is to provide an opportunity for scientists and the broader stakeholders in the animal agriculture sector to discuss the potential role of innovation in animal agriculture to improve the livelihoods of Africans.  The broad objective of the conference will be met through discussions of a series of papers, organized under sub-themes, to answer the broader question:   How can Africa organize herself to address challenges and, at the same time, take advantage of opportunities presented by a globalizing world?, Specifically, what are the technical and institutional innovations from the global North and South, which Africa can take advantage of, and the best mechanism through which such approach could be achieved.
