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).
