Sustainability for Poultry Farming

At Kyeema Foundation, we advocate for the use of local, sustainable resources such as village chickens, to mitigate the impact of multiple local and global challenges faced by the communities with whom we work. The UK-government funded One Health Poultry Hub project is working to support sustainable and safe poultry production. They are tackling the challenge of attaining sustainable intensification of chicken meat and egg production in Asia. Their key sustainability goal is to reduce the risks that may cause harm to both animal and human health.

Dr Robyn Alders AO (Chair of Kyeema Foundation) and a Senior Consulting Fellow to the Chatham House Centre on Global Health Security (a core member of the One Health Poultry Hub), has written a blog for the Hub.
