Welcome to the Homepage of the E-mail conference on small-scale milk collection and processing in developing countries which has been hosted by the FAO Livestock Products team, Animal Production Service from 29 May 2000 until 28 July 2000. The key objectives of the conference were to:

  • provide an overview of small-scale milk collection and processing in developing countries
  • gather ideas and share information about the subject of the conference
  • establish links and facilitate co-operation between key persons working in dairy production

The E-mail conference has managed to bring together 577 stakeholders from 97 countries who have actively participated in the conference and provided some very interesting and valuable accounts of experiences in their countries. 69 percent of the participants were from or working in developing countries. 29 percent of the participants contributed actively.

 

 

The feedback provided by participants will be one of the key reference points for guiding the short and medium term plans and activities of the Animal Production and Health Division of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in dairy development. The conference proceedings are currently in print and will be used as the base document for a series of regional technical workshops are planned in South America, Africa, and Asia in 2001.

We invite you to the papers and comments section to read the background documents of this conference, and the comments for the views of participants.
