Is the Livestock Revolution ‘supply driven’?


The notion of the ‘Livestock Revolution’ is one of the most powerful ideas to emerge in the area of food, nutrition and agriculture in the last 10 years. It has been called a ‘supply driven’ revolution, in contrast to the more ‘demand driven’ Green Revolution.

In a new blog post Jim Sumberg argues against this simple distinction. What is being demanded, and by whom, are questions that must be addressed.
