Strengthening the role of chicken genetics for sustainable poultry development in the tropics
- Impact Area
The Tropical Chicken Genetics Solutions (TPGS) initiative and their partners held a two-day workshop on 7–8 July 2022 at Bahir Dar University, Ethiopia to document lessons from the program and explore opportunities to enhance the effectiveness of complementary chicken-based interventions.
The workshop also proposed business models for improving the performance of chicken value chains.
TPGS is a genetics innovation strategy to identify and test high-producing farmer-preferred poultry genotypes and use them at scale to address income, nutrition and empowerment challenges.
