Workshops

The ARChE_Net network structured a training programme at regional level. 

The goal is to strengthen the skills of the participants involved in livestock production in order to better support the evolution and management of livestock systems facing a changing environment. These training courses of varying levels are aimed at several groups: students (diploma courses, theses), technicians and professionals (practical training).

WORKSHOPS IN PREPARATION (ECLIPSE 2016 - 2019)

New workshops will be organized, with a first module planned for September 2017 in India on the adaptation of animals to heat stress.

 

WORKSHOPS CARRIED OUT (ARCHE_NET 2012 - 2015)

According to requests expressed by partners, three training modules were organized during the first half of 2015.

 

MODULE 1: MACRO-ECONOMY, SUSTAINABILITY AND ADAPTATION OF LIVESTOCK SYSTEMS TO SOCIO-ECONOMIC CHANGES

Tutor: Dr Anne MOTTET, Livestock Policy Officer, FAO
Objective: To develop an analytical framework to assess the adaptation of livestock production to global changes.

MODULE 2: HEAT STRESS AND MAPPING THE VULNERABILITY OF HERDS FACING EXTREME HAZARDS AND CLIMATES

Tutor: Dr Bernard FAYE, veterinarian and consultant for FAO
Objective: To define the possible options of adaptation of livestock systems facing heat stress, at several levels: animal, farm and territory/country. This workshop made it possible to develop study and survey protocols on heat stress.

MODULE 3: ADAPTATION OF FORAGE SYSTEMS TO DROUGHT

Tutors: Michael PETERS and Rainer SCHULTZE-KRAFT from CIAT (Colombia); and David FALEPAU from CSU (Australia)
Objective: To present to the farmers different fodder resources management tools during the dry period or even during a drought, with the perspective of adaptation and application in the partner countries.
