Are we improving and supporting sustainable methods of livestock and agriculture to achieve Aichi Target 7?
6 December 2016
NGOs Group Meeting Room, Sunrise Building, Second Floor – CBD COP13 Cancun, Mexico
This side-event took place on 6 December and environmental organisations and consumer campaigns presented testimonies including photographic evidence from different countries highlighting how unsustainable livestock and feedstock production are undermining Aichi Target 7. Alternative ways of rearing livestock and promoting sustainable livestock production do exist and, if given sufficient support, they can help to ensure that resources are managed sustainably to conserve biodiversity. Panelists also discussed proposals on reforming incentives, including preventing perverse incentives for deforestation.
