Joint statement on GAA for sustainable livestock development

On behalf of the League for Pastoral Peoples and Endogenous Livestock Development as well as the LIFE Network, and in alliance with CELEP, a Statement on the FAO Global Agenda of Action (GAA) in support of sustainable livestock-sector development was presented on 22 May 2012 to the plenary meeting of the FAO Committee on Agriculture. The statement calls for investigation of viable and sustainable alternatives to the high-input model of livestock production that is exemplified by the Livestock Revolution and that depends on a very narrow range of animal genetic resources.
