Climate Change and the Globalization of Factory Farming: Brazil, China, Ethiopia, and India

This series of policy papers and short videos forms the foundation of Brighter Green's Program on Food Policy and Equity. The papers document the globalization of industrial animal agriculture in Brazil, China, Ethiopia, and India through the lens of climate change. They also explore additional environmental, food security, equity, livelihood, and animal welfare impacts of this phenomenon.

Below are the four full-length policy papers, four two-page policy briefs based on the papers, and four short documentary videos outlining the key issues covered in each policy paper. Materials in Portuguese, Chinese, and Amharic are also available (see links below).
