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.

BC3 Joint Seminar: March 27, 2019

Climate change mitigation pathways can differ strongly from one to else other, depending on the policy design, technological development or the established climate objectives. Integrated assessment models are able to project countless different climate change mitigation scenarios, allowing to compare the effects that each scenario has on other aspects, such as health, land use, energy security, inequality etc. Moreover, connecting these kind of models with additional tools increases the range of scenario implications that can be studied. In this seminar, we introduce the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM) and other tools that can be connected to this model, such as the air quality emulator TM5-FASST.

BC3 Seminar: Challenges of EU Agriculture facing Climate Change: Economic Impacts, Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies

Overview of quantitative work done by the lecturer in the last few years with different modelling tools to better understand the economic impacts of combating climate change. It includes the analysis of unilateral (e.g. emission targets) and multilateral policies (e.g. carbon taxation) and the promotion of climate change mitigation technologies (e.g. smart agriculture).
