    We still have a little bit of media work and perhaps we could come back to you to do some outreach and promotion - the next one is about the launch of the creative product (end Jan. 2018). We might pull you in for media outreach etc. but the big ask is to get this product as visible to as many people as possible etc.
    Let's try and find ways to work jointly on this outreach.
    (Saskia) On the global nutrition work etc. Gbola from U of Florida has been drafting sthg and we have now someone on board who can expedite the process.
    (Peter) The point is to develop this community and to work together on this thing.
    On policy engagement we've completed the UN level work and we're capturing that but we have to try to engage with 2 donor institutions - we still haven't decided that so we could come back to you on that etc. How to broaden that to have more impact.
    Thank you Ewen, Brian and Laura.
    Thank you all, it's been really very nice. It's been a pleasure.

    I'm continually impressed by the ILRI team and the ability to keep the energy going. My boss talks about impatient optimists. It's a good sentiment but in livestock advocacy we need to be patient optimists. 2 years ago we had this idea and validated the idea with livestock advocacy and communications. It's still just the foundation of that house. The fact that you have shown up. Now let's be realistic about what we can achieve in the short term - let's find a few quick wins we can be impatient about and let's focus on participating in the CoP etc. to focus on the mid-term wins etc. We need to keep on investing in livestock and advocacy - spaces where progress doesn't happen overnight.

    it happen. Thank you ILRI scientists, Michael and Robynne.
    Thank you.

    It's just to add my words of thanks, to our donors and to all of you. There's been so much energy thanks to all of you being engaged and sensing the value of being together. I hope you picked everybody's brains. 3 things that I picked and I think will be key:
    ...
    c) We need to get a lot smarter in our messaging. Sometimes we're defensive, we use facts, we use narratives. We have to be smart in how we communicate.
    It's only one step in our journey but it's an important step.
    That's it.

    Notes of the meeting
    Welcomes and introductions
    Rinn Self: a big gap for livestock advocacy. This group is critical to taking livestock to the next level. Thank you for your time and for the great conversations we'll be having.
    Jimmy Smith
    Welcome everyone to ILRI, particularly for something as important as this. There is less attention to the livestock agenda as we would like. Attention is disproportionately low against its potential. Out of the billions spent on ODA, 4.5% on agriculture and of this about 5% on livestock. That is not terribly different from the national agenda. Often representing 40% of agriculture, livestock receives 5% of national funding.
    Global livestock discourse is very negative about livestock. Evidence and arguments are building against livestock. Health, obesity etc. linked in the public mind to livestock. We need to separate facts from fiction and be more specific in light of generalities. We need to bring voice to the voiceless.

    We have not been able to debunk fiction for a very long time.
