Sustainable livestock: What are the options?

ILRI Clippings

January’s Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) was the venue for a panel session on sustainable livestock organized as part of the Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock.

The session was run as a facilitated discussion, engaging both a panel of five experts and the 80 or so participants attending.

Following panelist interventions, the discussion highlighted the key roles to be played by livestock in sustainable development and in protecting and enhancing the livelihoods of poorer sectors of society, including the livestock sector’s central role in mitigating climate change. These were contrasted with the strong negative biases towards livestock and meat emerging from the so-called green elite of western nations.
