In Africa, livestock production currently accounts for about 30% of the gross value of agricultural production. However, production is struggling to keep up with the demands of an expanding human population, rise in urbanization and associated shifts in diet habits. High cost of feed prevents the livestock sector from thriving and meeting rising consumer demand. In recent years, researchers identified insects as potential alternatives to the conventionally used protein sources in livestock feed. Marwa Shumo (Young Scientist in the EAAP Study Commission Insects) is presenting this issue in a movie.
