Plenary Session - Building Sustainability into Animal Systems


Today, there are 7.3 billion people in the world. Together, we're consuming 1.6 times what our world can naturally supply. By 2050, there will be 9 billion of us and double the need to feed.

How will we raise enough livestock without increasing the land capacity and resources we currently have? The solution we're turning towards is the sustainable intensification of our current plant and animal systems so we can grow enough crops to feed the masses.

Learn how key stakeholders, policymakers, retailers and researchers are needed to build long-term solutions so we can increase the amount of food we make while freezing our global footprint.
