Good thinking happens at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). A few days ago they discussed the complex issues around livestock, poverty and the environment and followed up with judgements about what they found.
I wish I could summarise this thinking for you, but that would be a mistake. The world isn’t simple. And as ILRI points out, we in the rich world shouldn’t assume that we know what’s right for poor people.
[Edit] My fellow blogger Janina at Food (Policy) for Thought makes intelligent remarks about these two ILRI posts here.
