      Developing ethical, sustainable and compassionate food policies. Kate Rawles. The politics and economics of farm animal welfare and sustainable agriculture. Peter Stevenson. Religion, culture and diet. Martin Palmer. Part 5: Devising Farming and Food Policies for a Sustainable .   Consumers are increasingly demanding higher standards for how their meat is sourced, with animal welfare and the impact on the environment factoring in many purchases. Unfortunately, many widely-used livestock production methods are currently unsustainable. However, new research out today from the University of Cambridge has identified what may be the future of sustainable.

      is an important year for the future of agriculture and development. A new set of global Sustainable Development Goals, or “SDGs”, will shape the next 15 years of policies, programmes and funding. More than any other sector, agriculture is the common thread which holds the 17 SDGs together. Investing in the agricultural sector can address not only hunger and malnutrition but also. This paper introduces a concept for sustainable production of animal-source food. This concept of “Livestock Farming with Care” is founded on care ethics with an integrated approach based on four principles: One Health (i.e. healthy and safe for animals and humans); Customized Care (i.e. from the individual animal's perspective and integrity); No Nuisance (i.e. from an environmental and Cited by:

This book provides an overview of the state of animal agriculture and present methodologies and proposals to develop policies that result in sustainable and profitable animal production that will protect human and environmental health, enhance livelihood of smallholders and meet consumer : David Zilberman.

Introduction. The availability of correctly trained and skilled manpower is one of the most critical requirements indeveloping a livestock sector. However, it is only one of the constraints that limit animal productionin developing countries.

The number of skills that are needed are many and varied. The sustainable development of animal agriculture, across the many different ecoregions or agroecological zones that are found in the developing countries, poses many fundamental challenges; challenges to the primary users of livestock, to their extension, research and support service agents (private- and state-sponsored), to local and regional development authorities, to investment banks, government policy makers and their institutional organs.

The need to increase crop yields in developing countries in a sustainable manner, in order to meet the increasing demand for food. The objective is to listen to all points of view and assess how life sciences and biotechnology can foster sustainable. Abstract. Developing a proficient sustainable agriculture under current context of major global threats (climate change, water scarcity, biodiversity diminution) combined with increasing population growth represents an imperative for conceiving a logical and consistent strategy planned to ensure the food and livelihood security.

Rice and wheat are essential suppliers of energy for the population of developing countries, and maize makes up over 60% of commercial animal feeds (Fischer et al., ). Based on projected global population growth, an annual increase of the world cereal production of % reaching billion tones (, Tg) will be required to meet the Cited by: Agriculture production that is sustainable over the long-term relies on diverse crop rotations, increased use of perennial species, and the integration of livestock in pasture and range based systems.

iv Food and Agriculture: The future of sustainability Our population trajectory means that from now tothe world will need to build the equivalent of a city of one million people in developing countries, every five days!

There is widespread consensus that, going forward, farmers must produce more food per unit of land, water, and.In these countries, we partner with public and private sector, as well as donors and other development partners in support of government national agriculture strategies: In Ethiopia, the Agricultural Development team has been investing in Ethiopia since Inwe partnered with the government to establish the Agricultural Transformation.Sustainable Agriculture is a term that has grown out of global call for sustainable development.

Unfortunately, the term has been very widely adopted to represent a variety of initiatives.
