Erick Omollo participated in the workshop: Livestock Systems in Urbanizing Environments: Impacts and Implications for Food Security in Developing Countries. This workshop was organized by AgriFoSe2030 and the Department of Economics at SLU, Uppsala Sweden.
The workshop attracted rich presentations mainly from Africa in four themes: (i) Livestock production and urban food and nutrition security; (ii) Constraints and opportunities for urban livestock production among smallholder farmers and households; (iii) Livestock production in urban and peri-urban environments in developing countries; and (iv) Policy and governance prospects for sustainable urban and peri-urban livestock production.
Erick made a presentation on: Fodder Farming as an Approach to Enhance Livestock Production in Urbanizing Pastoral Setups: A Case of Kajiado County, Kenya. This presentation generated a lot of discussions especially on commercialising, sustainability and formalization of fodder production among smallholder producers. Further discussion have continued on potential collaboration in research under this interesting area.
