SADC AnGR Workshop
17-19 July 2019
Department of Animal Sciences hosted the Southern Africa Farm Animal Genetic
Resources (AnGR) colloquium at the Stellenbosch Institute of Advanced Study
(STIAS) from the 17th – 19th July 2019. The colloquium
was aimed at intersecting innovation, food security and livelihoods.
The colloquium provided a
platform where established and upcoming researchers/academics, together with
NGOs and government officials, deliberated on what is known now on indigenous
animal genetic resources and some thoughts on their sustainable utilization
going forward. The fundamental aim of the colloquium was to promote partnership
between the government, NGOs and the private sector in developing plans for the
sustainable utilization and conservation of indigenous genetic resources in an
effort to combat threats to food security in Southern Africa. The AnGR covered
themes which included: taking stock of animal genetic resources in Southern
Africa; establishing the link between the value chain, sustainability, livestock,
food security and livelihood; policies and legislation regulating Animal
Genetic Resources in Southern Africa.
