Journal seeks proposals for special feature

As biodiversity loss and food security challenges threaten the ongoing viability of the global wild meat sector – which plays key nutrition, livelihood, cultural, and social functions in many of the world’s rural communities – the journal People and Nature is calling for submissions for a special feature, ‘Achieving sustainable and equitable consumption of wild meat’.

The issue will bring together a wide range of papers to build a contemporary and transdisciplinary picture of wild meat use across different settlements and groups, offer recommendations for effective policy and practice in this complex and critical arena, and draw on lessons learned from around the world.

The editors particularly welcome submissions that are relevant to policy and practice; address people’s interaction with nature; are inter– and transdisciplinary; and are by authors from the Global South. “Invited papers will be those that provide information that can help to move the policy and practice of sustainable, equitable, and safe wild meat governance and management forwards, demonstrating how the needs of both people and nature can be met,” they said.

Proposals must be submitted on or before 15 November 2023.
