About Conference

The current global environment had undergone substantial transformations due to climate change which also took its toll on agricultural sector. The livestock industry, as a part of broader agriculture, plays a role in sustaining food resilience.  Livestock production, however, both contributes to and is affected by climate change. Livestock production systems need to be continuously updated and improved to meet the global demand for food. On the other hand, the modification of livestock production systems needs to account for its effect on the environment as not to worsen or even better reduce the effect of climate change. In tropical countries, where the environment is harsh and livestock productivity is considerably lower, these challenges are more profound.
ISTAP, is a highly reputable international conference in tropical animal production hosted by Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. This year’s IX ISTAP shall address the climate change and livestock production issues in an attempt to sustain global food resilience.
