​ ​This ebook argues that social and environmental coverage will be synthetically handled as one and an identical box, that either are yet elements of an identical coin – if sustainability is the target. any such paradigm shift is indicated, vital, and well timed to successfully stream in the direction of sustainability. This e-book is the 1st to take this method and to provide examples for it. to not synthetically merge the 2 fields has been and may stay hugely inadequate, inefficient and contradictory for coverage and public management aiming for a metamorphosis in the direction of a sustainable global. in most cases, social difficulties are handled in a single “policy nook” and environmental difficulties in one other. hardly is social coverage (at huge) focused on its effect at the atmosphere or its reference to and relevance to environmental coverage. both, environmental difficulties are normally now not visible along with social coverage, even supposing a lot environmental coverage without delay pertains to overall healthiness, foodstuff, migration and different matters addressed by means of social coverage. This booklet intends to right the trend to split those very major and big coverage fields. utilizing examples from various educational and utilized fields, it truly is proven how environmental coverage can (and should still) be regarded as social coverage – and the way social coverage can (and may still) at the same time be noticeable as environmental coverage. large merits are to be expected.

More and more producers around the world are turning to intensive, industrial farm animal production (IFAP) systems (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture 2007; Verge et al. 2007), which now account for about two-thirds of egg and poultry production and over half of pig meat production (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations 2009).
