Transcript of "Mr. Lowell Randel - Grand Societal Challenges and the Role of Animal Science"

  1. 1. Lowell RandelFederation of Animal Science Societies
  2. 2.  Grand Challenges – PCAST Report Research Priorities – FAIR 2012 Funding Trends Opportunities to advance animal science
  3. 3.  Agricultural Preparedness and the AgricultureResearch Enterprise Report released onDecember 7, 2012 Report identifies 7 challenges facingagriculture in 21st century Contains 6 major recommendations including$700 million in increased federal investment Report now in hands of agencies
  4. 4.  Managing new pests, pathogens, and invasiveplants. Increasing the efficiency of water use. Reducing the environmental footprint ofagriculture. Growing food in a changing climate. Managing the production of bioenergy. Producing safe and nutritious food. Assisting with global food security andmaintaining abundant yields.
  5. 5.  Expand the role of competition:◦ Expand competition within intramural and extramural USDA◦ Increase NSF budget for basic science relevant to agriculture from$120 million to $250 million per year.◦ Increase the USDA budget for competitive funding of extramuralresearch from $265 million to $500 million per year Greatly expand a competitively awarded fellowship program to $180million per year Expand the USDA program of competitive awards for newinfrastructure investments Create six large, multidisciplinary innovation institutes focused onemerging challenges – funded at $25million/year for 5 years Internal review to increase regulatory clarity Establish an implementation committee and advisory committee
  6. 6.  Process to identify animal research prioritiesfor next 5-7 years Modeled after FAIR 95 and FAIR 2002 efforts Designed to inform policy makers inCongress and federal agencies about keyresearch needs to support animal agriculture
  7. 7.  Yearlong planning process Executive Committee◦ Members from academia, government and industry Program Committee◦ Members from academia, government and industry Culminated in March 2012 event Writing Committee
  8. 8.  Held March 2012 Over 160 representatives from academia,government and industry Plenary speakers on 3 thematic areas◦ Economic Growth and Environmental Sustainability◦ Animal Agriculture in Society/Global Marketplace◦ One Health (Healthy Animals, Healthy People,Healthy Planet) Breakout sessions Writing Committee
  9. 9.  Outcomes Report and Summary completedFall 2012 – available on FASS website◦ Outcomes Report - longer, more academic stylepaper◦ Summary - shorter “marketing document” Three focus areas emerged:◦ Food Security◦ One Health◦ Stewardship
  10. 10.  Global population estimated to be 9 billion by2050 Need to double food production Demand rising for animal products◦ Estimated 73 percent increase in meat consumption◦ Estimated 58 percent increase in dairy consumption 70 percent of increases must come fromtechnology
  11. 11.  Feed efficiency Energetic efficiency Reproductive efficiency Connecting “omics” to animal production
  12. 12.  Intersection between animal and humanhealth becoming more complex Interdisciplinary approach needed Zoonoses account for 58 percent of currentlyrecognized human pathogens Animal and human nutrition critical Regulatory challenges
  13. 13.  New approaches to vaccine development Understanding and controlling zoonoses Improving animal health through feed
  14. 14.  Animal agriculture touches many aspects ofsociety Growing demand, but limited resources Climate and other environmental issues Continuing concerns related to animal well-being
  15. 15.  Flow of nutrients and other potentialpollutants from animal production Estimation and reduction of greenhouse gasproduction Impacts of housing systems on animal well-being
  16. 16.  FAIR process identified numerouscrosscutting issues that apply to each of thethree focus areas Investment in priority areas is critical – butnot enough Must have functional structures andmechanisms to maximize impacts
  17. 17.  Balanced portfolio Size and scope of projects Pipeline for new scientists and industryprofessionals Enhanced collaborations Increased public awareness Regulations Data mining Risk analysis
  18. 18. NOTE: FY14 reflects President’s requested level
  19. 19.  Concept evolved through discussions withUSDA and NAS in 2012 Consensus Study entitled: “Considerationsfor the Future of Animal Science Research” Shorter timeframe than normal NAS studies
  20. 20.  Assess global demand for products ofanimal origin in 2050 within the frameworkof ensuring global food security Evaluate how climate change and limitednatural resources may impact the ability tomeet global demand for animal products Identify factors that may impact domesticability to meet demand for animal products
  21. 21.  Identify resources needed to develop anddisseminate this knowledge and technology Describe the evolution of sustainable animalproduction systems relevant to productionand production efficiency
  22. 22.  Hope to begin study in mid-2013 Currently working to secure funding forstudy Identify committee members Plan to hold three committee meetingsduring study Goal to have results ready to impact FY2015 budget process
  23. 23.  Challenges for agriculture have beenidentified – animal science has a major role toplay FAIR 2012 identifies key priorities to meetchallenges Funding trends have put animal science at adisadvantage But, opportunities and momentum arebuilding!
