Roles of public and private sector in dairy development
Outcome of the COP27 and “Pathways to dairy net zero” initiative
Solutions for dairy farming issues from Agri BusinessAbout the forum

Building on the Dairy Conference “Next generation farming & farmers”, we would like to open the topic to the public and to extend the discussion: Emerging markets have growing demand for dairy and therefore need to produce more, since many of the exporting countries see stalling production due to environmental pressure and rising costs.

So what will be the future farms in emerging markets that can cover this demand while providing stable livelihoods to the farmers? What kind of skill set do the farmers need to have to improve their efficiencies and which technologies can offset rising costs? How to make the future of dairy farming more sustainable in emerging markets from an economic, social & environmental point of view?

Why is the topic important?
Milk Price & input costs - reaching record levels in 2022
Milk Supply - stalling in developed dairy markets due to climatic conditions and more regulations
Milk demand - Growing especially in emerging markets yet consumers are also more affected by declining purchasing power

Emerging markets will need to expand their production
Who are the next generation farmers in emerging markets?
What kind of skill sets are needed to improve efficiencies in order to overcome rising costs and produce at affordable levels? How to make the future of dairy farming more sustainable in emerging markets?
