The Animal Health & GHG Emissions Intensity Network is a UK-led initiative of the Livestock Research Group of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA). It aims to bring researchers from across the world together to investigate links and synergies between efforts to reduce livestock disease and reduce the intensity of livestock related GHG emissions. The network’s first workshop was held in Dublin on the 25th March 2014.
A report summarising the workshop discussions is now available. It highlights the need to take a regionally specific approach to examining livestock systems and their impacts and details a set of objectives for achieving this. The report places a strong emphasis on the need to standardize modeling, data collection and consolidation techniques amongst members.
