Tracking the livestock sector for better climate change adaptation and mitigation in Kenya
- Impact Area
Globally, countries are making pledges to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions as part of the Paris Agreement, and Kenya is among those that have submitted an updated Nationally Determined Contribution.
The country has set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 32% below a business-as-usual scenario by 2030 and has also committed to enhancing climate change adaptation.
Climate-smart agriculture is one such intervention, focusing on efficient livestock management systems to reach both adaptation and mitigation targets.
A recent online meeting discussed how the livestock sub-sector in Kenya can increase productivity and efficiency while enabling the country to meet its climate change targets.
