Lunch & Learn: An Industry Infected — Australia Edition

The COVID-19 pandemic presents a real-time case study, highlighting the vulnerability of animal production systems and their capacity to handle external shocks. This pandemic also serves as a warning of the role that intensive animal production systems can play in increasing zoonotic disease risk.

The webinar will consist of a short presentation on the report findings, followed by an Australian investor panel to explore the challenges associated with this unprecedented global crisis.

This webinar will discuss:

  • The role that intensive animal agriculture plays in increasing zoonotic disease risk.
