Session 1 : Climate change and system vulnerability. 




Introduction to the workshop


The metaprogramme ACCAF (Thierry Caquet, INRA)


Vulnerability and the adaptive capacity of livestock production systems to climate changes: An overview from different geographic regions  (Anne Mottet, FAO)


Direct and indirect effects of climate change on the livestock sector from an economic and social perspective (Alexandre Ickowicz, CIRAD)


Coffee break

 Session 2 : Forecasting the impact of global environmental changes on livestock 


Evolution of foraging system (and raw materials) in the next 50 years in the light of climate changes (Rémy Delagarde, INRA)


Bioclimatology and adaptation of farm animals to a changing climate (Lance H. Baumgard, Iowa State University)


Quantification of the impact of climate change on animal health: Effects on Pathogens, Effects on Vectors and Effects on Hosts (Renaud Lancelot, CIRAD)


Lunch break

 Session 3 : Livestock system adaptive capacity 


Strategies to improve livestock system robustness: moving toward a heterogeneity of the livestock system (Emilie Ollion, INRA Clermont-Ferrand)


Transposition to temperate countries of farming practice experiences and/or genetic resources from the tropics: the example of mixed animal production system (Gisèle Alexandre, URZ, INRA)


Adaptive strategies to climate change at the livestock system and farming level (Philippe Lescoat, AgroParisTech)


Coffee break

 Session 4 : Animal adaptive capacities: from theory to practice 


Knowledge and gaps in G*E interactions: will the current selection breeds still be the “best ones” in the future? (María Jesús Carabaño, Departement of Animal Breeding, INIA Madrid)


Choosing genetic strategies to improve animal productivity and adaptability under harsh environments: experiences from classical selection, cross-breeding and genomic selections (Florence Phocas, GABI, INRA)


Phenotyping strategies to measure animal adaptability to harsh climate(Umberto Bernabucci, Univ. Tuscia, Italy)


Conclusions of the first day


Poster session


Thursday 12 February

 The aim of the first two "ateliers" is to develop a discussion to identify strategies to face climate change from a genetic and a phenotypic perspective, respectively. The results of these discussions will be hared  in the afternoon “plenary” atelier, centered on the “farm system”. The aim of this afternoon discussion is to identify the best strategies, taking advantage of acquired knowledge, to propose a farming system less vulnerable to Climate Change

ATELIER 1 : Genetic strategies to improve adaptation (9h-12h)

ATELIER 2 : Phenotyping strategies to quantify animal adaptability (9h-12h)

ATELIER 3 : Adapting Farming systems to Climate Change by type of production and agro-climatic conditions (13:30h-16:30h)

End of workshop: 17h
