Description
The speaker at the 10th RSIF Guest Webinar is Dr Chrysantus M. Tanga, research scientist with the Insect for Food, Feed and Other Uses (INSEFF) programme at the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe), winner of the Food Planet Prize. He and his partners were the first in Africa to successfully engage policymakers in the creation of an enabling environment for the rapid adoption of insect-based protein feed technologies. Using various organic wastes to feed the insects and sustainably produce animal feeds is co-shaping the transformation towards resource-sufficient agriculture, creating employment and improving livelihoods.
