How is the world going to feed itself into the future and what is going to be the effects on the environment, animal and human welfare and biosecurity? The AVA in conjunction with the Australian Veterinary Conservation Biology (ACVB), Australian Veterinarians for Animal Welfare and Ethics (AVAWE), Australian Cattle Veterinarians (ACV), Sheep, Camelid and Goat Veterinarians (SCGV) and Australian Veterinarians in Public Health (AVPH) groups - is offering a full day’s program to consider the crucial food security issues facing humanity up to 2050. During the day a series of experts from around the world will review the ‘assets’ available to meet this need and to consider the environmental, welfare and biosecurity implications. These will have a global perspective whilst also highlighting the Australian perspective and the role of our animal industries.
The 2019 AVA Conference will be holding a “AVA Poster Competition” as an opportunity for veterinarians to gain recognition for their research or clinical work and to build their professional profile.
