Prioritizing the reduction of methane in livestock climate actions in East Africa


This policy brief identifies actions countries in the East Africa region can take to reduce methane emissions from the livestock sector by including livestock-specific interventions in their nationally determined contributions as part of the Paris Agreement's commitment. The publication identifies four challenges and recommendations based on the following three pillars: transparency, coherence, and implementation capacity. The recommendations included in this brief are based on the regional dialogues with East African countries and address both ministries and livestock stakeholders with the aim of helping them set ambitious national methane reduction targets in the livestock sector.
