Abstract The increasing demand for animal products
and corresponding land use calls for
sustainable intensification of the livestock
sector. This PhD research is part of the project
‘Mapping for sustainable intensification’
executed at Wageningen University, the
Netherlands. The PhD research aims to
develop livestock growth models to estimate
the scope for intensification, to identify
constraining factors in livestock production,
and to explore management options. Model
results can be used in policy to target specific
areas with tailored management options to
increase the effectiveness of investments in
the livestock sector.
