Global Camel Research and Development Network (GCRDN)

Already launched

The idea of the Global Camel Research and Development Network has already been floated. Many members from different quarters of the world have joined. The camel scientists working in the field are part of the network.
The organization will work in 4 main areas;
1. Supporting research with small grants and technical support (supervisory help) with at least 2 scholarships each year. 2. Developing training material for research and products development
3. CAMEL magazine quarterly, the website will be the posting domain
4. Bi-annual zoom meeting and a conference once in 2 years (physical)

The Body of the Network

A body of working groups will work together to smoothly run the network and support the camel research and development.

A President and general secretary: President will be responsible for the whole organization and the general secretary will keep the communication and record of the whole interactions and happenings

B Proposal review committee: Each year, the committee will call for small grant research proposals, 2 research will be allocated with grants. The president will send the fund in 2 episodes. The researchers will communicate with the head of the committee, and satisfy the committee members.

C Editing and reviewing committee of the CAMEL: Each quarter, the CAMEL magazine will be released. The editor and his team will perform this task. At least 3 articles/field reports, first-hand information of the field, etc will be posted and the maximum can be 6 reports

D Training material production and reviewing committee: The committee will be responsible for finalizing training material for each task like milking, product development, etc.

Please come, join and play your role

I invite you to join our network and play your role in the camel research and development area. Just joining will not help the camel production and research but playing an active and useful role will certainly be useful. Please share the link in your circles and find support for the network. We are not earning from networking, all working voluntarily. The author has already sponsored the first small grant for the research.

African Milk Products camel milk The Camel and Climate Change

Kenya’s dairy industry switches from cows to camels | Global Ideas

The cow is the most important farm animal in parts of Africa but climate change is threatening the existence of the animal. Recurring droughts and extreme heat are making cows unable to produce essential milk. Camel produces milk in harsh conditions where other farm animals are hard to survive. In Kenya, a group of farmers has found an alternative to camel milk.

Unlike cows, camels can withstand long periods of extreme drought and still produce milk all year round. Some 200 women have already made the switch from cow to camel milk. Camel milk is healthier and pleasant in taste. The move has improved living conditions for many, especially because they are able to sell milk from their camels at a competitive price.
