- To support workshops, scholarships, and an online hub to advance farm animal welfare science in developing nations.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $135,412 over two years to the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE) to advance farm animal welfare science in developing nations. Developing nations account for an increasing share of the world’s factory farmed animals, yet few have many farm animal welfare scientists. ISAE intends to use these funds to send 15 developing nation scientists to its annual conference, and to host workshops, regional meetings, and farm visits, which could both accelerate the development of farm animal welfare science in developing nations and increase the likelihood that the science focuses primarily on welfare rather than productivity.
This is a renewal of Open Philanthropy's previous support, and falls within its focus area of farm animal welfare.
