SAPT 2 will take place in the framework of the 64th annual meeting of the EAAP
Guidelines for presentations are available here.
Considering the current context of animal production in the tropics, the first SAPT1 symposium concluded that agro-ecological intensification is the major pathway for meeting the challenges of agriculture in the tropics
SAPT2 will address sustainable intensification, diversification and multi-functionality, integrated livestock farming systems in tropical regions, smallholder production and food security, efficient feeding strategies, animal adaptation and resilience, climate change adaptation, the combination of methodologies at different scales (farm, local, regional), socio-economic scenario and role of livestock in livelihood strategies.
The presentations will privilege case studies, multidisciplinary and integrated studies, models and experimental approaches. We expect innovative methodological approaches, specific or more generic, from the South as well as from the North.
