Event detailsThe penetration of corporate livestock farming into the developing world and its displacement of traditional smallholders is causing socio-economic, genetic and environmental damage and poses threats to their food sovereignty. The genetics industry is consolidating, and heading for GMO animals and clones. The presentation will address the state of GMO animals and clones and the associated regulation in the EU and US; the state of livestock genetic diversity; consolidation and market penetration of the genetics industry; and present examples of livestock sector policies in developing countries and their possible impact on smallholders.
