Livestock, the key in a circular bioeconomy
With an increasing global population and consequently, food demand, the livestock sector represents a key actor to address the challenge of global food and nutrition security. Animal productions can contribute efficiently to the Bioeconomy for a sustainable food-chain, providing multiple benefits.
However, the sector is strongly questioned for its environmental impacts, inefficient use of resources, animal health and welfare and supposedly human health issues linked to the consumption of animal product… “Is it wise to reduce our consumption of animal products in Europe from the point of view of sustainability? Can we easily replace protein of animal origin by protein of plant origin?”
During the year 2016, the Animal Task Force engaged a dialogue between research, farmers, industry, decision makers and stakeholders to provide input for public policies on Livestock’s role in realising a Sustainable Bioeconomy for Europe, and to share on avenues for improvement and research needs.
