Agriculture, Livestock and the Anthropocene

How are we going to eat tomorrow and who will produce our food?

This question may seem preposterous for many Westerners who have access to abundant, varied food at moderate prices. An event of considerable magnitude weakens this ease of access as we have known it for 50 years: the Anthropocene. We have entered a new geological era that greatly destabilizes our agriculture and forces us to fundamentally reinvent the way our food systems work, from the production of raw materials to their consumption. This book offers an unprecedented framework of analysis which makes it possible to understand why the trajectory that we are currently pursuing in terms of agriculture and animal husbandry can in no way suit the very specific context of the Anthropocene. It also makes reform proposals to support the trajectory of regenerative agriculture and sustainable breeding.
