About the campaign

Across the globe, industrial livestock operations are a major cause of greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, biodiversity loss, land and social conflicts, animal cruelty, water depletion and air and water contamination. These harms disproportionately impact women, indigenous peoples and low-income communities of color. Yet, from Brazil and Ecuador to China and Vietnam to Madagascar, Public Development Banks (PDBs) are financing giant meat companies like Marfrig and Smithfield Foods under the guise of “development”. Our research has found that in the past decade, the top 5 development banks poured $4.5 billion into industrial livestock companies.

A diverse coalition of groups have come together to launch a global campaign that aims to shift public development finance away from industrial animal agriculture towards more sustainable food production, initially targeting multilateral development banks and their funds – such as the IFC/World Bank, the InterAmerican Development Bank (IDB), Asian Development Bank (ADB), African Development Bank (AfDB), and the Green Climate Fund.

The goal of the campaign is to end public financing of industrial livestock farming and to shift finance to food systems that use agro-ecological practices and high animal welfare standards, that are more plant-based; that support smallholder farmers and communities, including in particular women; and that are just, equitable and sustainable.
