Choosing from among the host of strategies for mitigation on greenhouse gas emissions is not easy. One needs to consider competing environmental priorities, social and economic factors, and commercial and political interests.

We need to study such strategies using systems-based and multidisciplinary approaches to provide policy with the most balanced choices.

FAO’s work on climate change: Livestock and climate change

Smallholder livestock keepers, fisherfolks and pastoralists are among the most vulnerable to climate change. Climate change impact livestock directly (for example through heat stress and increased morbidity and mortality) and indirectly(for example through quality and availability of feed and forages, and animal diseases). At the same time, the livestock sector contributes significantly to climate change. In fact, 14.5 percent of all human-caused greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions come from livestock supply chains. It amounts to 7.1 gigatonnes (GT) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-eq) per year.
