Teagasc/SRUC Conference6 December 2019 6 December 2019
Venue Teagasc Research Centre, Ashtown, Dublin
Teagasc and SRUC have for many years collaborated on issues of mutual interest and concern. This process culminated in 2018 with the first of a series of annual conferences aimed at identifying solutions and helping create new opportunities for our rural economies. Recognising that rural regions need to be innovative in order to share prosperity in an increasingly globalised economy and respond to societal challenges, the focus of conference series is on building innovative, competitive rural economies that will contribute to national economic and social well-being.
This conference will address the major environmental, consumer and economic challenges facing our pasture-based livestock systems in Scotland and Ireland. We will, in particular, address options for creating sustainable and resilient pasture-based livestock production systems that can help mitigate GHG emissions and adapt to a changing climate, while continuing to provide food and nutrition security. Specifically, we will explore how to strengthen the role of sustainable livestock in a circular bio-economy.
This conference will bring perspectives and insights to work together to bring about effective policy and economic and technological solutions that could lead to vibrant, sustainable and a more circular agricultural and rural sectors in Scotland and Ireland in the coming decades.
