Who we are

We are a group of nominated individuals from Asian NGOs/CSOs doing Farmed Animal advocacy programmes in Asia 

 

We recognise that this region’s effective farmed animal welfare policy intersects with food sovereignty. Security, human rights, and environmental concerns are essential cornerstones for effectively operationalizing farmed animal welfare policy in Asia.

What is our vision as a working group?

  • A better world for millions of Farmed Animals in Asia through a policy recognising them as sentient beings with mental, physical, and emotional needs.

  • A group of people, individuals, and organizations who are working together to effectively engage key institutions in developing and implementing policies benefiting Farmed Animals across Asia.

As the International Campaign Manager at World Animal Protection, Vince has extensive knowledge and experience working in the area of policy after several years of working in multiple projects and programs across the region
