Fwd: climate smart livestock management systems

Dear Colleagues,

Good morning. Please take note of the following 2 interesting resources
on livestock and climate smart agriculture.

1. Quantification and Mitigation Strategies to Reduce Greenhouse Gas
Emissions from Livestock Production Systems
https://www.mdpi.com/books/pdfview/book/2384 [1]

2. Current situation and plausible future scenarios for livestock
management systems under climate change in Africa.

Dear colleagues,

Please see attached a new working paper of CCAFS and ILRI on the

Current situation and plausible future scenarios for livestock
management systems under climate change in Africa

The aim of this study is to review the literature and provide a
technical brief to the African Group of Negotiators Experts Support
(AGNES) on the effect of climate change on livestock across the
continent up to 2050, highlighting the adaptation needs and options. The
report provides a brief description of: (i) the different livestock
farming classification systems; (ii) the key challenges and impact of
climate change on livestock and the farming systems; (iii) the likely
future trends and scenarios; (iv) the top adaptation actions that can be
taken and (v) their enablers and barriers to uptake. The report also
addresses adaptation co-benefits, gender and youth, and traditional
knowledge and institutions. It looks at knowledge gaps and how global
trends may influence the livestock industry in Africa.

One of the authors is our well known colleague Philp Thornton.

Perhaps worthwhile to circulate through CCARDESA DGroups and upload on
ICKM system?

Best wishes
