The demand for livestock products is growing
and climate change threatens food security and rural
livelihoods. Policies that are currently in place may prove
insufficient. Livestock systems are a significant contributor to
greenhouse gases (GHG) but there is much uncertainty.
ANIMALCHANGE will for the first time
provide a vision of the future of the livestock sector under
concerning GHG emissions from livestock systems.
Include climate variability as
part of impact assessment.
Develop cutting-edge technologies
for mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
Assess economic and societal costs
of business as usual and of adaptation and mitigation
Assess the vulnerability of
livestock to climate change and feedbacks on GHG
Provide direct support to set up
policies for mitigation and adaptation to climate change
for the livestock sector.
Reach out to stakeholders by
organising symposia, training of scientists, technicians and
policy makers and forming a network to alert stakeholders of
project outputs and events.
If you want to learn more about the
ANIMALCHANGE will use cutting edge techniques
and mathematical modeling to achieve these outcomes.
The results will
be applicable to wide range of systems not only in Europe but
also in Africa and Latin America.
Invitation to AnimalChange training course and workshop in Hungary
A training course on the impact of livestock on climate change and on mitigation and adaptation options
A workshop, organised jointly with the Global Research Alliance, which aims to disseminate the results from the project and to derive strategies for future implementation.
