Overview

Chatham House will be co-hosting a side event at the 2014 Climate Change Conference in Lima, Peru. At the event, panellists will discuss how to equitably and sustainably address animal agriculture in the framework of current and future climate negotiations. They will elaborate on key principles and examples and present new research on the potential for demand side actions, including the need for enhanced public awareness. 

Antony Froggatt will present results from a ground-breaking 12-country survey which explores global public opinion on meat and dairy consumption and its links to climate change. These findings are part of a Chatham House project on public understanding and behaviour in relation to diet and climate change. 

Please note that this event is being held in Lima, Peru. All times are local.
