The 10th Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Meeting (GASL MSP 2020) in Delémont will analyse various livestock systems around the world and showcase the multiple roles of Swiss, French and European livestock sectors in order to demonstrate their potential for sustainable development. With expected attendance of up to 350 decision makers from governments, international organizations, NGOs, research institutes, social movements and the private sector including farmers from over 50 livestock producing and importing countries. It is a unique opportunity for international leaders working in the sector to ensure their sustainability achievements are represented and their voice is raised at the GASL discussion tables.

In Delémont, the focus will be on the following topics:
  ·  Core theme: The Multiple Roles of Livestock in Sustainable Development
  ·  Key elements for a sustainable livestock sector at global, European and         
     Swiss levels
  ·  Field visits: Cases of successful practice change in the Swiss and French
     livestock based value chains
  ·  Livestock and culture: the multiple roles of the local horse breed, mountain       
     livestock culture and products
  ·  Interaction with farmers from Switzerland and France (field visits and           
     Organic-Livestock Day)

 Objectives
  ·  The multiple roles of the livestock sector in support of sustainable    
     development will be introduced with science-based inputs. These inputs will
     be discussed and validated by the participants.
  ·  In policy fora, essential political frame conditions will be discussed and further
     developed. Enabling frame conditions considering and fostering the multiple
     roles of livestock will lead to sustainability in livestock-based value chains.

     practices and practice change along the entire livestock based value chains will
