Photo story: Livestock Keeping: Building a future by Susie Emmett, Green Shoots Productions
Much of the meat, milk and other products we enjoy from animals are produced by small scale livestock keepers and pastoralists. But their livelihoods are under threat. How to help?
The League for Pastoral Peoples and Endogenous Livestock Development (LPP) brought together livestock keepers and international experts in Bonn, Germany for ‘Livestock Futures’. In this photo story they share their visions for the future and how to help small scale livestock keepers and pastoralists to thrive.
The Conference „Livestock Futures“ has highlighted the importance of integrating small scale livestock keepers in the dialogue about food security, biodiversity and environment conservation. Their contribution to these topics is invaluable and must be recognized.
