In this seminar, Professor Mario Herrero addresses the key messages of the EAT Lancet Report, including the role of livestock in sustainable and healthy diets.
Earlier this year, the EAT–Lancet Commission released a report addressing how to feed a growing global population a healthy diet while also defining sustainable food systems that will minimise damage to our planet.
Professor Mario Herrero, a contributor to the EAT-Lancet report and SEBI collaborator, gave a seminar on the realities of navigating these issues, including the role of livestock in sustainable and healthy diets.
Prof Herrero is Chief Research Scientist of Agriculture and Food at CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Australia), and is a Corresponding Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. This seminar was recorded at the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies on 19 September 2019.
The seminar was organised by Supporting Evidence Based Interventions (SEBI) in collaboration with the Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Security, both hosted by the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.
