This paper provides an overview of demographic and economic changes in the world that are in influencing the livestock sector. The following section describes the methodological approaches to mapping human and livestock populations, provides a summary of how the FAO projections are made (focusing on livestock commodities), and describes how these can be combined to map projected demand for and supply of livestock commodities. The results section presents some examples of the outputs of the analysis and the concluding section mentions some ways in which the methodology might further be developed in the future and discusses some implications and potential uses of the results.
