  • Conclusions
livestock s long shadow
Livestock’s Long Shadow
  • Land use
    • Rangeland represents about 26% of emerged land
    • Feed crops use about 33% of arable land
  • Climate change
    • 18% of GHG emissions related to livestock food chains
    • C storage potential
  • Water
    • Livestock sector represents 8% of all entropic water use, 90% of which for feed production
  • Biodiversity
    • IUCN identifies livestock as one of the threats to 1699 endangered species (red list)
    • Can also have positive effects on biodiversity conservation

Technical options for mitigation are largely available but conducive policy frameworks and institutions are missing.

the aftermath of lls
The aftermath of LLS
  • Raised awareness
    • academia, general public, policy debate
    • over simplification and distortion/selection of messages
    • focus on climate change
    • basic results stood the test
  • Many studies relying on food chain / live cycle approach: available results and databases but fragmented
  • Expectations to move on to an action plan
aim of current activities on climate change
Aim of current activities on climate change
  • Provide specific policy and technology options to mitigate Greenhouse Gas emissions of livestock production
    • identify ”low hanging fruit”
      • enteric methane
      • manure management
      • restoration of degraded pastures in the Neotropics
  • Provide scientific underpinning to climate negotiations
    • improve the quantification calculations
    • quantify economic and trade implications associated with policy recommendations
    • identify technology packages adapted to farming systems and agro-ecological zones

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Livestock’s Long Shadow provided an overview of livestock’s impact on major global environmental issues
  • Since then the work of AGAL has mostly focused on climate change
  • Analytical work aimed at underpinning the selection of technologies (AGAP) and policy options (AGAL)
  • No strong collaboration with NGOs so far
