Science Congress to discuss climate change

Veterinary experts’ meet on Nov. 9

Climate change and global warming are leading to changes in ecosystems which may affect livestock production and undermine food security.

The emergence of multi-drug resistant organisms that are capable of triggering pandemics in animals and humans alike are also a cause for concern, say veterinary experts who are planning to discuss these issues at the Kerala Veterinary Science Congress to be held from November 9 in Wayanad.

Four sessions

Binu K. Mani, organising secretary of the event, told the media on Thursday that scholars would participate in four technical sessions and present papers. They are veterinary science in practice, animal health sciences and wildlife, basic veterinary and allied sciences and animal production and management. There would be oral and poster presentations based on research findings.

A special session would be arranged for undergraduate students too.

Minister for Ports and Museums Kadannappally Ramachandran would open the two-day event at the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Science University at Pookkode.

The Minister would honour five persons who were part of the flood relief works in Wayanad this year. Rajesh Kumar Singh, Principal Secretary, Animal Husbandry, would release a collection of scientific proceedings, Dr. Mani added.
