Livestock and aquaculture production and vulnerability to AMR/zoonoses and land use change
This topic explores the interactions between intensifying livestock and aquaculture production for food and nutrition security, and a) increased vulnerability to antimicrobial resistance and zoonoses; b) land use change. Discussions will be framed around these key questions:
- How can we improve both human and animal health and welfare while sustainably improving farm productivity?
- How can we improve land use management while sustainably meeting the increased demand for animal source foods?
- What are the key trade-offs?
- What are the implications for the research agenda?
Background papers have been commissioned to set the scene and guide Forum discussions. You can access complete background papers and summaries in this section, as well as related case studies.
