Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock

The Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock aims at catalyzing multi-stakeholder action to improve the livestock sector’s use of natural resources whilst ensuring its contribution to food security and livelihoods.

To be sustainable, livestock sector growth needs to simultaneously address key environmental, social, and economic challenges: growing natural resources scarcity, climate change, widespread poverty, food insecurity and global threats to animal and human health.

In 2010, FAO with financial support of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture, and Innovation of the Netherlands, started a process of building this Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock. Today FAO facilitates and is actively involved in the partnership.
