Links between livestock production, the environment and sustainable development
|Author(s) :||J.-P. Pradère|
This study examines the prospects for strong growth in the supply and demand for animal products worldwide, especially in developing countries, where 80% of the world’s population lives. Based on scientific publications, statistics and field observations, it reviews greenhouse gas emission levels from livestock, the ability of ruminant livestock systems to sequester carbon and the capacity of the livestock industry to meet the challenge of sustainable development and to share its benefits while minimising impacts to climate change. Special attention is paid to the situation of the 800 million livestock farmers in the world living at the extreme end of poverty.
