Adaptation of livestock systems to climate change: functions of grassland, breeding, health and housing

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This report presents the available knowledge and relevant research questions related to 1) grassland based livestock production systems and GHG emissions, and 2) adaptation of livestock systems to climate change, to provide information for prioritization research and other actions on adaptation and mitigation. Solutions can be found through the combination of enabling infrastructure for agricultural development and introducing public-private cooperation into research programmes. The provision of veterinary services, financial services, a knowledge infrastructure and governance of land use are essential for maintaining and improving agricultural productivity.
