Climate change, food security and growth: Ethiopia’s complex relationship with livestock

Brighter Green has just published a study on Ethiopia’s complex relationship with livestock. It uses climate change as entry point to explore the effects of the expansion and intensification of the livestock sector in Ethiopia for the country’s food security, resource use, and issues of equity and sustainability.

In this policy brief, Brighter Green questions whether Ethiopia’s expansion and intensification of its animal-agriculture sector is constraining its chances of coping effectively with drought and erratic weather.
