Keywords: SDGs, livestock, climate change, sustainable diet, social impact

The objective of this paper is to carry out a synthesis about the multiple and complex relationships between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the field of animal production, paying special attention to its implications and consequences derived from the current climate change.
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development presents 17 SDGs, which integrate, in an indivisible way, the three dimensions of sustainable development, being these pillars: social, environmental and economic. The livestock sector has a remarkable role and significant potential for the implementation and achievement of these objectives, focusing its possible interventions from different perspectives that will be developed throughout this article. Approaches include the general relationships between the SDGs and livestock, various strategies for the implementation of the SDGs, the impact of the climate crisis on animal production and its implications at social level. As well as, aspects related to climatic migrants and food production, analyzing also the impact of meat production and its consumption on sustainable diets.
