ILRI@40Livestock-based options for sustainable food and nutritional security, economic well-being and healthy livesProcess and Dialogue Process Map
The ILRI@40 brochure sets out the general framework and issues for the process. This note sets out ideas to keep and harvest the issue focus.
The overall theme is ‘Livestock-based options for sustainable food and nutritional security, economic well-being and healthy lives’. This is the focus of the 6-7 November event, which needs to synthesize all the conversations that go before. Each formal side event has its specific focus within this general area.
While each event has its deeper focus, we need them to also contribute to the global event in November; around some guiding questions that we can harvest and synthesize, and ‘vision’ around:
- Livestock and sustainable food and nutritional security
- Livestock and sustainable environment
- Livestock and economic well-being
Livestock and healthy lives
Possible quiding questions that need to be included in every side (and any other related) event are:
- Looking to 2025 (2050?), the two key/most critical livestock or livestock research questions [in country X, region Y, discipline area Z] that need answering or resolving are ….. [capture the questions and briefly the issues driving them]
- Looking to 2025 (2050?), prioritize the roles of livestock in relation to sustainable food and nutritional security, economic well-being and healthy lives in terms of 1) their relative importance in the country 2) the likelihood that livestock research can make substantial transformational improvements to these issues in the short to medium term [capture the rankings (importance in the country; likely livestock transformations), some insights into why]
- Looking to 2025 (2050?), for the roles of livestock in relation to sustainable food and nutritional security, economic well-being and healthy lives, identify the most promising longer-term ‘best bet’ livestock research interventions and investments to achieve better lives through livestock.
Each meeting needs to capture these answers/insights and report them in a standard way (ideally also with a blogpost). We need to provide template/comms support.
As we move along, we need a way to track/synthesize the answers/insights generated and feed them to a small technical team tasked to monitor each.
The Panels on 6 November need to explicitly address some of these and expand on them. Ideally we capture the discussion points in the same structure.
The groups on 7 November need to take account of all of this and the person charged with producing a ‘vision/challenge’ to 2025 (2050?) needs to build on it. We also need it synthesized so the groups can turn all this into a product that: Synthesizes the top questions to be answered to 2025 (2050?) and formulates technical and investment priorities and interventions to achieve ‘better lives through livestock’. The addis consensus!
