A greener world "exist to promote and support real-life farming models to the public and to offer practical guidance on achieving truly sustainable livestock farming systems to farmers".
In this week’s mailing, FCRN provides a detailed critique of a recent article by Richard Young, the Sustainable Food Trust’s policy director where he argues that we need to eat more, rather than less red meat. We disagree. Our mailing also includes our latest Member Snapshot as well as articles and reports covering: food losses in the US; different conceptual framings of the food insecurity problem; the potential health benefits of a tax on sweetened drinks; and the need for conservationists to raise the profile of biodiversity loss as a concern equalling that of climate change.
