Good practices: Livestock production with minimal use of antibiotics

Presented by My Salman at the seminar "Antimicrobial resistance; linkages between humans, livestock and water in peri-urban areas" at the World Water Week, 29th August 2016.

Farm animals come to cities, is it good or bad?

However, despite multiple linkages between water, sanitation and food production, these sectors are often handled separately. Holistic approach to water, sanitation and food production is also rare in the development cooperation work.
