Sustainable Animal Productivity and Environmental Footprint Toward Global Halal and Food Security



Animal production in recent decades has been increasing dramatically, to satisfy the demand of an ever-growing human population and economy. However, this rapid growth has also led to a rise in the environmental impact associated with animal production. Indeed, animal farming produces a large amount of waste, contributes to deforestation and the loss of habitats, and generates to various problems including stress and diseases. This is problematic as it leads to a greater demand for land and other resources, further exacerbating the issue of food security. Moreover, animal farms can be relatively inefficient at utilizing available resources due to their reliance on conventional agricultural practices, such as the use of extensive arable land and large numbers of poor-quality pastures and forages for feeding their animal. In addition, the demand of halal food is increasing sharply due to the spread of Moslem population. These issues are interesting to be intensively discussed by various experts in related fields dealing with  sustainable animal productivity and environmental footprint toward global halal and food security.


The 10th International Seminar on Tropical Animal Production (ISTAP X) organized by Faculty of Animal Science, Universitas Gadjah Mada and scheduled to be held from 8-9 November 2023 foresees many discoveries in animal science research and other related areas. It aims to develop pilot projects focused on  more efficient and sustainable animal production systems, specific evidence based on research and experiences of community, and communicating these with a view to inspiring further implementation.
