The 16th Asian-Australasian Association of Animal Production Societies (AAAP) Congress 10-14 November 2014 in Yogyakarta Indonesia

Asian-Australasian Association of Animal Production Societies

The theme of the 16th AAAP Congress is “Sustainable Livestock Production in the Perspective of Food Security, Policy, Genetic Resources and Climate Change”. We believe that animal production in Asia and Australasia has become important and strategic sector to provide high quality food, opening up job opportunities, as well as improving farmer’s welfare. Animal science communities, therefore, have to support this growing interest by providing more appropriate and relevant technologies to improve efficiency of resources utilization to produce more animal protein food by member countries. Long term sustainable livestock production will, therefore, be significantly influenced by the national food policy, climate change issues, as well as conserved environments and genetic resources. This congress will keep its tradition to be a forum of communication among researchers, academician, industries, and related stakeholders among Asian-Australasian countries. Our continuous effort to improve animal protein food production should be built upon the collaboration and cooperative efforts between scientists who have already contributed significantly to livestock production in the region.

Scope of AAAP: AAAP is established to devote for the efficient animal production in the Asian-Australasian region through national, regional, international cooperation and academic conferences.
