The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $2,064,034 AUD (approximately $1,467,570 US at the time of conversion; this amount may be adjusted based on future exchange rates) over three years to the Animal Welfare Standards Project (AWSP) to create an animal welfare-focused institute, to be called the Sino-Australian Animal Welfare Centre.
This grant is a renewal of our December 2016 support, and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare. Since our first grant, AWSP has conducted 32 stakeholder workshops and 18 focus groups, created 26 training modules and 22 training videos, and is surveying producers to assess the full impact of its preliminary activities. The AWSP team have also conducted research with livestock stakeholders across six Asian countries to explore animal welfare initiatives that are likely to be embraced and therefore successful.
