  • GRA Livestock Research Group Newsletter: July 2017

    July 2017

    Welcome to the July 2017 edition of the Livestock Research Group’s newsletter.

    USDA’s Acting Chief Scientist, Dr Ann Bartuska, remarked at the recent Livestock Research Group (LRG) meeting how much the group has grown in subject area and expertise. She described this as “crucial given the importance of livestock’s role in our food systems, [alongside] the need to increase production – both the amount and nutritional quality – sustainably”.

    Livestock greenhouse gas emissions now account for 62% of all agricultural emissions (FAOSTAT). With 92 countries including livestock emissions in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, the sector’s contribution to climate change is becoming a global priority. This was borne out in Washington D.C. at the LRG meeting – our biggest gathering yet, attracting over 60 participants including from nearly 30 countries and all of our major international and regional partners.

     

    • In this newsletter:
      Plans to develop four flagship research programmes for the Alliance, including on enteric methane
    • Dispatches from the recent LRG meeting in Washington D.C., including network updates, capability building decisions, and engaging with the IPCC
    • Launch of a new platform on sustainable livestock production in Latin America and the Caribbean P9 Highlights from the white paper on improving the measurement, reporting and verification of livestock emissions P10 Information on international fellowship opportunities
    • Events of interest to the LRG community
