Debates around sustainable livestock and protein are often highly contentious. This report sets out the results of a project that aimed to identify research questions around livestock and protein that civil society deems to be of particular importance.
We conducted a series of interviews with senior representatives of civil society organisations,
primarily based in the UK. We followed this with an online workshop where a selection of civil society representatives and academic researchers (from the University of Oxford’s Livestock, Environment and People (LEAP) project) discussed research priorities.
Based on both the interviews and workshop we identified five main themes within which civil society and researchers wanted to see more research or better communication of existing research.
