Livestock for Livelihoods: A Congressional Event @ Russell Senate Office Building- Room 485
Jul 23 @ 9:00 am – 9:15 am

Please join Heifer International and the Alliance to End Hunger for a morning summit on Capitol Hill to raise awareness on livestock as an essential and multi-faceted tool to reduce hunger, malnutrition, and poverty among smallholder farmers in developing countries.

Eventbrite - Livestock for Livelihoods: A Congressional Event

Livestock plays a critical role in building the livelihoods of resource poor communities in the developing world.  They are a source of food, income, employment, and capital asset.  Despite this critical role, the smallholder livestock sector has been sidelined in many agricultural development efforts, receiving little to no development dollars.  This one-day summit proposes to:

  • Raise awareness of US administration, policy makers, and development organizations on the role of livestock in agricultural development, particularly on the livelihoods of smallholder farmers;
  • Highlight animal-based protein and micro-nutrients in human nutrition;
  • Discuss holistic and complimentary approaches to smallholder agriculture;
  • Build on the experience and technical expertise of Heifer International and other livestock organizations to design/shape development effort for smallholder farmers globally.

Speakers will include:

  • Pierre Ferrari (President and CEO, Heifer International);
  • Ambassador Tony Hall (Executive Director Emeritus, Alliance to End Hunger);
  • U.S. Senator John Boozman, AR
  • Richard Greene (USAID Deputy Assistant Administrator, Bureau for Food Security)
  • Rose Koech (Smallholder Farmer, Kenya)
  • Antonio Rota (Senior Technical Adviser, Livestock and Farming Systems, IFAD)
  • David Bunn (Associate Director for Africa Programs, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, University of California-Davis)
  • Trevor Tompkins (Founder and President, Venture Dairy)
