Towards a sustainable, participatory and inclusive wild meat sector | John Fa book interview
Wild meat includes over 500 wild vertebrate species traded and consumed throughout Oceania, South America, South and Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. In remote rural communities, it is an important source of protein, but increases in urban population and trade between rural and urban areas, where it is considered a luxury food, are pushing some wild meat species populations to the point of extinction.
A new book by CIFOR and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD),”Towards a sustainable, participatory and inclusive wild meat sector” gathers all available literature on sustainable wild meat management strategies and includes best-practice recommendations for designing and implementing solutions.
CIFOR Senior Associate and Manchester Metropolitan University Professor John Fa talks about the new publication.
