Countdown to the Conference
ABOUT PAN-AFRICAN DONKEY CONFERENCE
The Pan African Donkey Conference (PADCo) is a continental flagship on donkey welfare issues with the objectives of sharing and exchanging knowledge on donkey welfare and donkey skin trade, a platform for informed policy dialogues, mainstreaming the donkey in development, sensitization and bringing the whole of Africa together in one voice with a consolidated position on donkey skin trade (DST).
The Conference is convened by AU-IBAR in partnership with the Regional Economic Communities in Africa [IGAD, EAC, ECCAS, ECOWAS & SADC], and with support from WOAH, ILRI, KARLO and the Animal Welfare Organizations involved in Donkey and Equine welfare in Africa. The Brooke Hospital for Animals is the Secretariat to the PADco.
