Abstract:
By the year 2030, it has been estimated that 1/2 of the world's poor will live in urban areas. Livestock keeping has been found to be a critical activity of the urban poor largely occurring informally and often directly contravening legislation. Therefore this thesis explores a range of 'opportunities' forged by urban livestock keepers in regards to livelihoods, migration strategies and the pursuit of livestock knowledge. The study focused on three cities. El Alto and Cochabamba in Bolivia, and Chennai in India. Semi-structured interviews with 683 participants informed the research.
