Course: Milking to potential

Worldwide dairy sectors are challenged by expanding populations and economic growth. Growing demand for dairy has led to a significant increase in public-private involvement to new opportunities for stakeholders. This course will enable participants in designing and implementing dairy development strategies in emerging economies.
Upon completion of the course participants will:
• have a clear picture of the multiple aspects of dairy systems, their relation with markets and the emerging challenges and opportunities due to urbanization, climate change, decreasing of resources and consumers demand;
• have the ability to develop scenarios in search of alternative options and trade-offs in resource-scarce situations, using state-of-the-art approaches;
• design own transition paths for the introduction of innovative farming interventions that are socially, economically and ecologically balanced.
