At the LSHTM AMR Centre seminar, Nicolas Fortané presents a paper co-authored with Florence Hellec, Nathalie Joly, Florence Beaugrand and Mathilde Paul, entitled “Reducing antibiotics to strengthen intensive and industrial livestock farming? AMR and agri-food transitions in the age of Anthropocene”. It discusses the different forms of transitions towards a more responsible use of antimicrobials in France and showed how the major part of antibiotic reduction is achieved through processes of re-intensification and re-industrialisation of animal farming.
