Details for World Livestock 2011 – Livestock in food security

Name:World Livestock 2011 – Livestock in food security

Although much has been said about livestock’s role in achieving food security, in reality, the subject has been only partially addressed and no current document fully covers the topic. This report is an attempt to fill the gap. It expands the 2009 State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA) (FAO, 2009b) section which examined the multiple roles played by livestock in the food security of the poor and advocated for support of smallholders, both in responding to opportunities in livestock production and in finding other opportunities within a broad rural development strategy.
