The Open Philanthropy Project contracted with the Commonwealth Veterinary Association for $31,355 to provide travel for international farm animal welfare experts to attend an animal welfare workshop in March 2019 in Bangalore, India. As with our previous grants to support travel scholarships for animal welfare scientists, we believe it is possible to positively impact the trajectory of welfare science in developing nations.
This funding is discretionary and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare. This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we do not typically publish pages for contractor agreements, we chose to write about this funding because we view it as conceptually similar to an ordinary grant, despite its structure as a contract due to logistical constraints.
