The JD Stewart Lecture, presented by Associate Professor Robyn Alders and Professor Peter Windsor
Faculty of Veterinary Science, the University of Sydney
How can understanding complex links between human and livestock disease, gender, ecosystem management and agriculture help the world prepare for the challenges of feeding a growing population?
Veterinarians Associate Professor Robyn Alders and Professor Peter Windsor will share their findings, having worked closely with smallholder farmers in developing countries such as Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia, Mozambique and Tanzania.
Whilst focused on livestock management and sustainable farming, their research has evolved to include the many cultural and economic elements of communities and their practices.
