Cameroon moves towards low-carbon livestock systems
Livestock Development Project (PRODEL) aims to improve access to livestock services (e.g. animal health), high quality inputs such as improved genetic material, feed and fodder, technical training and capacity building. It does so through financially supporting business plans (BP) with improved animal production practices and the pastoral resource management plans (PRMP) with restored pasture, fodder fields, zoosanitary parks and pastoral boreholes using solar energy. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) used the Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model-interactive (GLEAM-i) to assess the impact of PRODEL activities on total emissions, emissions intensity (i.e. emissions produced per unit of product) and protein production. The assessment covered 263 BPs implemented in all 10 regions and 30 PRMPs distributed in four regions of the country. Experiences from PRODEL can be valorized to other national projects, contribute further to the development of the national strategy on climate smart livestock and to meeting the national climate commitments.
