Abstract

Education is one of the founding pillars of the World's Poultry Science Association (WPSA). The Association regards most of its activities as contributing to education. The Journal, now in its 62nd volume, presents review articles on a diverse array of subjects concerned with poultry science. In addition, the Journal contains details of upcoming educational courses at a variety of institutions around the globe.

World Congresses, Regional Conferences, Symposia and Workshops provide educational opportunities at a variety of academic levels. WPSA provides scholarship opportunities for young scientists to attend these events and also contributes to faculty support through its Speakers' Bureau Programme.

The Association also cooperates with the Dutch organization, Agromisa. Together they are producing poultry management manuals for use in developing countries. The International Network for Family Poultry Development operates in developing countries to improve poultry management at the village level, thereby raising the nutritional status, as well as economic activity, among some of the world's most vulnerable and poor people.

From this, it can be seen that the WPSAoperates at every level of poultry keeping, to improve the competence of those involved. These activities are supported by both the world and branch organizations.
