The @MaMoPanel’s 6th Forum is an opportunity to discuss our new report #MeatMilkMore ‘Policy innovations to shepherd inclusive & sustainable #livestock systems in #Africa’, in the context of population growth & rapid urbanization.  

- Demand for products like milk, meat and eggs in Africa is growing rapidly. With Africa’s population estimated to reach 2.2 billion in 2050, how will the continent meet this demand? Check out our new report #MeatMilkMore for some tips!  

- The #livestock sector employs millions of people across #Africa and is key driver of economic growth. #Investment & #innovation in value chains can ensure that the continent  esp women & youth - can reap more benefits of this rapidly growing sector. @MaMoPanel #MeatMilkMore 

- #COVID19 has hit #Africa's #livestock sector, through reduced access to inputs & services & falling incomes = lower consumption. BUT, investments in the sector, esp in value chain dvpt, can help to kickstart slow economies, creating inclusive & sustainable growth. @MamoPanel  

-To enhance African #livestock sector, @MaMoPanel recommends the design of a framework that guides interventions & supports the development of an inclusive, holistic, productive, and profitable industry. Find more recommendations here: #MeatMilkMore
