Climate smart livestock production in Ecuador
Since 2016, Ecuador, through the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG) and the Ministry of the Environment (MAE), with technical support from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and financing from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), has implemented the climate-smart livestock (CSL) approach. This approach, which is a pioneering initiative in Latin America, seeks to sustainably increase livestock productivity and the income of producers, improving the resilience of livestock systems to climate change, and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The preliminary results of the initiative are presented in this publication.
