7th All Africa Conference on Animal Agriculture (AACAA)

29 July  – 2 August 2019. Accra.  The 7th All Africa Conference on Animal Agriculture (AACAA).

PPP can strengthen the provision of vet services 
with direct benefits on animal health & related impact 
on public health, social welfare, business 
and national economy” Dr Isabelle Dieuzy-Labaye of 

With a focus on the animal agriculture (including aquaculture), the 7th AACAA provided opportunity for research and development stakeholders of animal agriculture in Africa to discuss the current as well as emerging opportunities and challenges arising from these major trends and suggest potential actions to harness the opportunities and to address them.

The conference also examined how the continent’s animal agriculture can increase its private sector engagement – through public-private sector partnerships. In this context the conference examined ways to leverage private sector investments through strategic national, bilateral and multilateral financing of livestock and fisheries/aquaculture research and development that also target youth and women – whose engagement represents one of the major unexploited opportunities for the continent.
"The link between innovation globalisation animal productions could not be over emphasised. Rapid economic growth and global dietary shifts called for increased animal production to meet the growing nutrition and food need of the people. Africa needs to innovate to avert food crisis and meet the food security needs of
its citizens," Dr Yemi Akinbamijo Executive Director of Forum for Agriculture Research in Africa
