Livestock and climate change: Assessment of emissions, mitigation options and adaptation strategies: New online advanced course from 19 to 30 October 2020

17 September 2020

CIHEAM Zaragoza has organized a high-level online course on Livestock and Climate Change together with the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases, the FAO, ICARDA, Red Remedia and the 4 per 1000 Initiative, who will contribute by providing scientific support in terms of contents and lecturers.

Livestock occupies 30% of the global land area and contributes 80% of all agriculture’s direct emissions. There is a challenge in developing complementary adaptation and mitigation strategies for the sector, in accordance with the Paris Agreement on climate change and Sustainable Development Goals.

Combining live streaming sessions and personal work with supporting material, this online course offers a holistic view of available tools to support informed decision making. It is a unique opportunity to network with professionals from other countries to generate new ideas, work on real case studies in different conditions and learn about processes underlying GHG emissions and soil carbon sinks, measuring methodologies and modelling tools in livestock systems, methods for national GHG inventories and mitigation options analysis, including socio-economic assessment, as well as adaptation and mitigation strategies.
