Public Policy and Legislation
Through the same thematic programme area, ALL CREATURES contributes to the Livestock component in the formulation of public policies and legislation that impact on animals' wellbeing. Primary focus and achievement this year was the strong animal welfare inclusion the Malawi 2017-2022 National Livestock Policy & National Livestock Strategy. We have also contributed to the formulation of the Animal Control By Laws of the Cities of Lilongwe and Mzuzu. The organisation has also been involved in the formulation of the Africa Animal Welfare Strategy and Africa Platform for Animal Welfare in conjunction with partners and the AU-IBAR.
With the kind support of the HSUS/HSI the Malawi 1970 animal cruelty legislation shall be replaced with one of duty of care for the year 2018. The Human Society of the United States has committed to support the Ministry of Agriculture with this process with ALL CREATURES as the grounds partner.
The organisation values the role of public policy in animal wellbeing and ensures that animals always are catered for in any pertinent legislation and ensures that they do not get a raw deal.
