Fórum Nacional de Proteção e Defesa Animal — Crate- and Cage-Free Campaigning in Brazil (2020)

Grant investigator: Amanda Hungerford and Lewis Bollard

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $100,000 to Fórum Nacional de Proteção e Defesa Animal (FNPDA) to support work campaigning to reduce the use of battery cages for layer hens and gestation crates for pigs in Brazil. Using our August 2018 funding, FNPDA secured multiple crate- and cage-free corporate pledges and published a tracker of the implementation of corporate pledges.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $200,000 over two years to Fórum Nacional de Proteção e Defesa Animal (FNPDA) for campaigning to reduce the use of battery cages for layer hens and gestation crates for pigs in Brazil.

FNPDA has played a role in securing crate-free pledges from Brazil’s four largest pork producers and cage-free pledges from 26 Brazilian food companies, and intends to use these funds to continue its corporate campaigns, to start a tracker of corporate implementation of cage-free pledges, and to host a conference with egg producers, food companies, scientists, and activists to discuss implementation.

This is a renewal of our October 2016 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

Fórum Nacional de Proteção e Defesa Animal — International Cage-Free Advocacy

 

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 over two years to Fórum Nacional de Proteção e Defesa Animal (FNPDA) to support its work to end the confinement of hens in battery cages.

Earlier in 2016, we recommended a series of grants to support corporate cage-free campaigns and wrote on our blog about why we see this as a promising strategy to promote farm animal welfare. The present funding, part of a new series of grants focusing on international cage-free advocacy, will support FNPDA’s work in Brazil.1
