Policy Options for Addressing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the Livestock Sector Paperback
Human consumption of meat and dairy products continues to be a major driver of climate change but has so far been largely overlooked in national and international climate policy.
Using data obtained from a twelve-country survey and focus groups and stakeholder meetings in Brazil, China, the United States, and the United Kingdom, the report aims to explore the extent of public awareness and understanding of the issue and make specific recommendations for state and non-state actors to develop dietary change policies on the national and international level.
In doing so, it will help to shift the focus toward demand-side action, which has been shown to be essential both to meet international agreed climate objectives and to achieve other societal, health, and environmental objectives.
