Food production has more impact on land use, biodiversity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than any other human activity. In particular, rapidly rising demand for animal products is widely considered to be unsustainable, leading to calls for “sustainable intensification”.

Livestock intensification has increased production and profits but many worry that such high-intensity techniques bring with them other important environmental and health costs.

Key Projects, Countries, and Partners: 

The extent of trade-offs in land use, greenhouse gas emissions, antimicrobial use and animal welfare costs in pig systems.
