About The Conference

Background
Africa Union Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) spearheaded effort to develop the Africa Strategy for Animal Welfare as a way of consolidating synergy towards better Animal Welfare in Africa. Governments and Civil societies in Africa are currently at various stages of domesticating the implementation of Africa Strategy for Animal Welfare, coordinated through the Africa Platform for Animal Welfare (APAW).

The Africa Animal Welfare Conference (AAWC), now in its third year, is steadily emerging as a major forum for practitioners, policy makers and stakeholders in animal welfare to engage and build capacity in this sector, and further still, to relate the sector to relevant actors in development.

The AAWC 2019 was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, cohosted by Africa Network for Animal Welfare (ANAW) and the UN Environment under the theme “Animals, Environment and Sustainable Development in 21st Century Africa: An Interlinked Approach”.

The 2020 conference will be held in Accra, Ghana from 7th to 9th September 2020.
