Quelle place pour l’élevage, les prairies et les produits animaux dans les transitions agricoles et alimentaires ?

Abstract : In recent years, studies have underscored the negative effects of livestock systems and diets high in animal products. However, environmental and health impacts are often considered separately. In Europe, scientists have indicated that the best way to reduce such impacts is to reduce the dietary intake of animal proteins. Grass-based systems could help in this regard. Here, we examined the consequences of pursuing different types of solutions: 1) reducing the dietary intake of animal protein (by 22%, to bring current intake in line with recommended intake, or by 34%, to accomplish the same but also increase the relative reliance on vegetable protein) or 2) raising livestock exclusively using resources that humans cannot exploit for food. The main ways of implementing such strategies are examined, and concrete suggestions are provided.
