We are pleased to announce the launch of our new book ‘Livestock for a Small Planet’ on 5th October in a session with renown livestock experts from different backgrounds and schools of thought. This little book disentangles the various allegations against livestock to conclude that it is not a black and white issue but depends very much on how farm animals are managed. Ilse Köhler-Rollefson challenges the prevailing ‘efficiency paradigm’ and suggests a radically new approach to align livestock keeping with planetary boundaries. It may not come as a much of a surprise that she thinks the west could learn much from the pastoralists of the world about how to manage animals in tune with nature.
Please join us for what promises to be a lively discussion about the future of livestock keeping!
The book itself will be uploaded here shortly before the launch.
At this event we will present our World Map of Pastoralists project.
We want to show the extent of nature-positive livestock production throughout the world. Pastoralism is a big part of this.
Pastoralists make irreplaceable contributions to food security, the environment and climate protection worldwide. We are developing a map to show how many and varied their groups are and where they can be found. We want to visualize the importance of pastoralists for the whole Earth.
The map is not complete. It is an ongoing project that should be constantly added to and corrected. In this webinar we will also explain how you can take part and how to contribute information on pastoral communities.

The overall goal of this follow-up project that is supported by Misereor is to institutionalize mechanisms and policies that give greater weight to pastoralism in the agro-ecological transformation of the global food sector.
Through the project LPP will support advocacy and capacity building of pastoralist communities with respect to assessments of their numerical, economic and ecological importance.
LPP will provide inputs to the policy debate around the ‘detrimental effects’ of livestock through blogs, responses to misleading information and articles.
The project shall mainstream the concept of pastoralism /mobile livestock keeping among various movements/platforms, including in Europe/Germany.
One of the project activities is the development of a World map of Pastoralists:
With the map we want to show the extent of nature-positive livestock production throughout the world. Pastoralism is a big part of this.
The map is not yet complete. It is an ongoing project that should be constantly added to and corrected.
