The road to future sustainable animal production systems.
In this work package, we will develop scenarios for future sustainable animal production systems. Production systems will be evaluated and cover many aspects of environmental, economic and social sustainability, by summarizing the knowledge and results found from the other work packages. A special focus of WP5 is the assessment of biological diversity. In Sweden, a major threat to biodiversity is linked to the abandonment of farm land and especially due to the lack of animals grazing natural pastures. Here, the grazing animals play a crucial role for maintaining the biological diversity.
