Description

A scientific workshop on measurement and mitigation of greenhouse gases in livestock systems for green production and environment of APEC members was held in December last year. The workshop discussed issues covering the diversity of livestock management systems in APEC member economies, the greenhouse gas emissions and the special characteristics of those systems. A key goal of the workshop was to identify opportunities for future collaboration and coordinated capacity building activities in livestock mitigation research across member economies. This report highlights the findings and recommendations from the workshop.
