U.S. Food Policy Affecting Animal Agriculture in a Time of Climate Stress


This webinar is part of the Animal Matters Seminar Series presented by Tufts Center for Animals and Public Policy

This seminar will discuss the breadth of U.S. food and nutrition policies that influence animal agriculture, meat production and manufacturing, and the protein category in food intake. We give special attention to how these policies reflect competing goals for producer livelihoods, nutrition, and environmental sustainability in a time of climate disruption. The seminar will draw connections between new research and teaching initiatives across several Tufts schools.
