The impact of cricket farming on rural livelihoods, nutrition and the environment in Thailand and Kenya by Afton Halloran. PhD thesis submitted to the University of Copenhagen, August 2017.

After three and a half years of research in collaboration with GREEiNSECT, Afton Halloran has released her thesis paper focusing on cricket farming in Thailand and Kenya. The report highlights that although countries such as Thailand have been engaged in insect rearing for many years, appropriate legislation is not in place, where as in Kenya there is a fundamental lack of awareness about the potential of cricket rearing among local farmers. Halloran also investigates the environmental impact of cricket farming in Kenya and Thailand, as well as providing recommendations for further development.
