Panel description

This panel discussion will focus on:

- How to transform the primary/agricultural sector?

- Policy: What can politicians do to help to transform the agricultural system (regulations, subsidies, farmer buy-outs, CO2 taxes)?

- Farmers: Are farmers willing and economically able to reduce their number of livestock drastically (70%)?

- World market: How does the global community needs to act on this? Let’s say one country reduces livestock production, wouldn’t the supermarkets just import from other countries?
