The WAAP Plenary Session to be held in Lyon
In 2023, after 45 years, the World Association for Animal Production (WAAP) Conference will be held again in Europe and in conjunction with the EAAP Annual Meeting. We are therefore very pleased to introduce you to the highly anticipated plenary session introducing the WAAP conference on “Climate Change, Biodiversity, and Global Sustainability of Animal Production.” It is evident that our world is at a critical juncture, demanding urgent action to address the complex interplay between climate change, biodiversity loss, and the sustainability of animal production systems. Therefore, this plenary session represents a beacon of knowledge and collaboration, uniting experts, researchers, and visionaries from various disciplines to explore the intricate connections between these pressing global challenges. Over the few days of Lyon meetings, we will delve into cutting-edge research, innovative practices, and transformative ideas that hold the potential to shape the future of animal production while safeguarding the delicate balance of our planet. Our esteemed panel of speakers will illuminate diverse perspectives, sharing invaluable insights on the profound implications of climate change and biodiversity loss for animal agriculture. Together, we will examine the intricate relationships between land use, greenhouse gas emissions, habitat destruction, and the delicate web of life that supports both humanity and countless species. Together, we have the opportunity to reshape the narrative surrounding animal production, forging a path towards a more sustainable, equitable, and resilient future. By embracing science, innovation, and collaboration, we can chart a course that harmonizes the imperatives of food production, conservation, and the preservation of our natural heritage.
