The economic implications of a protein transition
The protein transition, defined as the rebalancing between animal and alternative proteins in diets, is presented as a solution to mitigate the harmful effects of cattle production on the environment. We discuss the implications of such a transition on current livestock farms.
Lock-ins to transition pathways anchored in contextualized cooperative dynamics : insights from the historical trajectories of the Walloon dairy cooperatives
