This project aimed to better understand the existing data in ACIAR and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade livestock projects/programs, and the attitudes and interest of project partners to participate in livestock monitoring, reporting and verification activities into the future.

The major challenges/opportunities for future work in this space, including developing a system allowing better data collection/validation, accurate assessment of feed quality, provide opportunity to allow project team members to be trained and experience with greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting. The group discussion highlighted that ongoing training to in-country personnel and collaboration with local/international donors are needed to support capacity-building.

The Part 1 literature review showed that multiple countries being considered under our “Climate Lens” are developing studies regarding GHG emissions in the livestock sectors.
