The new GASL Progress Report 2019 is now available

Innovation was the keyword for GASL in 2019. In order to meet the challenge of the increasing demand for animal products and to shape the development of livestock production in a sustainable way, innovation is central to find solutions. The Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock (GASL) reflected this focus not only in the organization of its annual meeting entitled “Innovation for Sustainable Livestock Systems” but in its steering of the programme through a series of innovative events, activities and approaches to make the livestock sector more sustainable, globally, regionally and locally.

This report summarizes the actions, progress, challenges and achievements of the Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock during the year 2019. It was the first year of the implementation of the new Action Plan, with new goals, new activities and participation of members in more than ten events designed to bring the multi-stakeholder approach of creating a sustainable livestock sector to the people. The report focuses on twelve main achievements of 2019. It continues with a list of events and a short projection for 2020 and beyond. It compares the achievements with the foreseen activities of the 2019–2021 Action Plan. A chapter on finances explains the inflows, expenses and balances, followed by fundraising endeavours and challenges. The report finishes with lessons learnt and recommendations to improve GASL’s performance in 2020. You can download the report here.
