On making the livestock sector more efficient, equitable and sustainable–Francois Le Gall, Livestock Global Alliance

ILRI Clippings

Jean Dubuffet, Vache aux deux arbres, 1943.

The following opinion piece by World Bank advisor François Le Gall was published recently on the launch of an advocacy brief by an alliance of leading organizations in global livestock issues. Chaired by Le Gall, the Livestock Global Alliance aims to bring the often overlooked livestock sector to the forefront of solutions to global development challenges such as food security, health, economic growth and climate change. The Livestock Global Alliance unites the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and World Bank Group.

Making the livestock sector more efficient, equitable and sustainable will only work if interventions are tailored to this great diversity.
