On 16 November 2015, international and national policy stakeholders, researchers and civil society organisations gathered in London for a Brooke-hosted policy conference highlighting the multiple contributions of livestock to livelihoods and national economies.
We organise policy events designed to bring the role of working equine animals to the attention of decision and policy makers.
This report is part of our policy and research to increase knowledge of the links between working equine welfare and human welfare. It focuses on the economic contributions of working horses, mules and donkeys to household incomes and aims to highlight to policymakers that these animals are financially benefiting their owners.
In 2013 Brooke initiated the Voices from Women research project to explore the role of working horses, mules and donkeys in supporting the lives of women from the perspectives of the women themselves.
As part of our guest lecture series, Brooke have been inviting leading figures within the animal welfare sector to come share their knowledge with Brooke. In this video Harry Eckman from Change for Animals Foundation and a Consultant for IFAW came to Brooke to talk about building animal welfare capacity in difficult situations.
