In response to the increasing demand for protein in Asia, the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) investment portfolio in the livestock and feed industry is growing. At the same time, the plant-based meat and alternative protein industries are taking off globally, with especially fast growth in Asia. Hence, it is essential for policy makers, industry investors, and ADB’s food security engagement to understand the quickly changing food value chain landscape in the region to gain knowledge on global best practices in supporting the protein industry to ensure environmental sustainability, nutrition, and food safety; and to understand the implications for smallholder agriculture while enhancing food supply capacity.
In consideration of ADB’s relevant investments over the next 3 years, CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) experts have developed guidance on sustainable livestock and analyzed sustainability for four cases in consultation with its working group members. The workshop will discuss the findings of the guidance and case studies on dairy in the PRC and Indonesia; feed and fodder in Uzbekistan and plant-based meat alternatives and pork in PRC.
