We, the undersigned, urge Member States engaged in the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) and Climate Change Conference (COP26):
1. To publicly recognise that reducing industrialised livestock production and consumption is essential to meet the global targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity. Focusing on technological improvements cannot address the core problem and will only delay and deepen the engulfed climate, environmental, health, food and nutrition security crises.
2. To apply the principles of Just Transition to enable a global equitable transformation within livestock production which could serve as a strong driver of job creation, social justice, poverty reduction and better public health.
