Agriculture in general, and livestock in particular, are facing major challenges in the near future. The poultry sector has major assets to meet the expectation of the world population, provided that it can anticipate changes needed for sustainable production systems. Our ambition is that WPC2022 brings a major contribution to these challenges for the benefit of the world population.

The program features object-oriented sessions integrating various approaches to address a complex challenge, and specialized sessions  corresponding with the scope of WPSA working groups. In addition, 11 plenary talks will address major issues for the poultry sector as a whole.
