Improving reporting for agricultural emission reductions in the livestock sector

Innovations for improved reporting of mitigation in the livestock sector demonstrate progress towards national climate commitments.

To help track progress on countries’ mitigation pledges for Paris Agreement, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) facilitated a science-policy dialogue on measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of mitigation in the livestock sector on 7 November at COP22 in Marrakech, Morocco. The dialogue was conducted in collaboration with the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

61 countries plan to reduce livestock emissions under the Paris Agreement, yet the methods most developing countries use to assess emissions are not yet sufficient to capture the impacts of climate change mitigation practices.
