Animal Husbandry is a one-way transfer of nutrients from soil to animal food consumers who live far away from where the animals were raised. Over time, this converts forests into deserts and impoverishes forest dwellers who become urban slum dwellers, driving down wages for others!


The correlation between land degradation, mass migration and global poverty is discussed in depth in UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) Global Land Outlook of  2017.
