An End to Factory Farming can help Halt the Climate Crisis

This FOUR PAWS publication addresses governments and asks them to put food and farming at the heart of urgent climate action

31/10/2022

The window to halt catastrophic climate change is rapidly closing;  global greenhouse gas emissions are expected to hit their highest levels in the coming three years and after that steadily decrease. Halting climate change, biodiversity loss, and nutrition insecurity to secure the future of people and the planet are some of the biggest challenges our generation faces.

FOUR PAWS urges governments to align their food and farming policies with their climate, development and other international commitments. Furthermore, governments should support the transition to more sustainable and animal-friendly food systems and more plant-based diets in order to stay within 1.5 °C of global heating. Especially in the Global North, livestock numbers must decrease to within the planetary boundaries.
