Livestock from three different perspectives

In a recent report, FAO presents a global overview examining the role that livestock plays in human nutrition, the world food supply and access to food particularly for poor families. It moreover gives a human perspective as analyses how livestock contributes to the food security of three different human populations: livestock-dependent societies, small-scale mixed farmers and urban dwellers.
The report reviews the drivers that led to the livestock revolution, how these have changed and what the implications will be for livestock contributing to resilient food systems of the future.
As the report highlights, although much has been said about livestock’s role in achieving food security, the subject has been only partially addressed as no current document fully covers the topic. By 2050 an expanded world population will be consuming two thirds more animal protein than it does today.
