The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,000 to World Animal Net (WAN) to support its engagement with the World Bank to co-organize farm animal welfare workshops. The funding is intended to allow WAN to contribute to the preparatory work and costs of the workshops; invite farm animal welfare experts/scientists who could potentially advocate for animal welfare reforms to the workshops; support research, analysis, and coordination of advocacy strategy in advance of the workshops; and conduct post-workshop follow-up and dissemination activities.

Our Program Officer for Farm Animal Welfare, Lewis Bollard, believes influencing multilateral institutions’ policies through conference participation and activities is a potentially high-leverage route to improving farm animal welfare, particularly in emerging economies.

This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
