This report from US public policy think tank Brighter Green discusses industrial-style livestock production in Africa, which, although growing, has not yet reached the scale seen in the United States. Starting from the assumption that industrial livestock production is undesirable, the report sets out how Brighter Green engaged with academics and researchers in sub-Saharan Africa to challenge this agricultural development model.
The academics consulted agreed that, in order to combat industrial livestock farming, African culture, traditional farming methods and local landscape and climate contexts should be centred.
