Enhancing climate action in the livestock sector
The KJWA can play a crucial role in enabling the livestock sector to contribute to climate action by mobilizing knowledge, technology, finance and capacity. It acknowledges the strategic importance of livestock including key areas such as improved soil carbon sequestration in grazed grasslands, improved nutrient use and manure management and improved livestock management systems. The KJWA process offers good opportunities for countries to exchange views and experiences related to the inclusion of livestock in their national climate actions. This brief summarises the outcomes of a series of regional workshops on “Boosting Koronivia in the livestock sector” organised by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) from 30 September to 22 October 2020. The workshops, attended by 35 countries from Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean, provided a platform for countries to exchange experiences and discuss how the KJWA can support climate actions on livestock while delivering the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
