Wherever you are in the world, beekeeping is a guaranteed source of income. The international market varies but in developing countries honey production remains a vital means of subsistence.

As the crucial role of bees as pollinators of the world’s food supply is increasingly becoming common knowledge, reports about the serious decline of honeybee populations in Europe and the USA have alarmed governments, the private sector and the general public. A similar decline in Africa and Asia has the potential to further threaten the world’s biodiversity, in addition to compromising the food security and livelihoods of millions of rural resource-poor farmers, as well as having negative impacts on the agricultural income of commercial farmers.

Article published in the European Commission magazine 'Commission en Direct' (April-May 2015 issue).

It deals with the impacts of livestock on climate and the environment, while proposing options to make a difference, at a public level and individually in our food choices.

Climate change and extreme weather, population growth, galloping urbanization and soil degradation impact the lives of an unprecedented number of people today.
