Asia Research and Engagement — Farm Animal Welfare (2022)

Open Philanthropy recommended a contract of $450,000 over 18 months with Asia Research and Engagement to support corporate and investor outreach for farm animal welfare reforms in Asia.

This follows our May 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we typically do not publish pages for contractor agreements, we occasionally opt to do so.
