Climate smart dairy practices

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkAcademic


How can the dairy sector contribute to a resilient food system in East Africa?
This question is faced by actors in the East African dairy sector, who intend to contribute to
a combination of system outcomes: food and nutrition security, rural economic
development, and climate adaptation. These outcomes have a higher priority in East Africa
than issues like climate mitigation and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, prominent in
OECD countries.
Perspectives of actors are coloured by the context in which they operate. For example, the
appreciation of dairy proteins is high in contexts of qualitative malnutrition. Different
perspectives lead to different trade-offs between people, planet and profit objectives and
eventually to different issues and opportunities.
