IAMO is pleased to invite applicants to a summer school on quantitative analysis of animal husbandry in Central Asia to be organized in the framework of a new project "Revitalising animal husbandry in Central Asia: A five-country analysis (ANICANET)" supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

It emphasises quantitative data collection across countries and the promotion of research capacity in Central Asia.
The Summer School will combine theoretical lectures and practical exercises with discussion sessions on current issues of animal husbandry in Central Asia. The participants will gain competency in using statistical software for analysing agricultural survey data and are expected to prepare and present a research project on a pertinent livestock development topic based on exemplary micro-data made available by the summer school instructors. For the practical exercises in data analysis, the participants will be introduced to methods in Stata. Sessions will include lectures, discussions, group work, case study exercises and statistical analysis.
The summer school is open to any student interested in issues of livestock developments that are related to Central Asia. Participants from the five post-Soviet Central Asian countries Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan are particularly welcome.
