Low carbon livestock development in Kyrgyzstan
IFAD Asset Request Portlet
Technical note: Low carbon livestock development in Kyrgyzstan
This report presents the potential impact of the planned IFAD-funded Regional Resilient Pastoral Communities Project on greenhouse gas emissions, both in terms of the overall impact of the project, and as a possible input to the update of Kyrgyzstan’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).
The assessment was carried out using the Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model-interactive (GLEAM-i), a tool developed by FAO to measure emissions from livestock value chains and compare the impact of future scenarios. The study shows that there are options to produce more milk and meat but at the same time lowering emissions and without increasing livestock numbers.
This assessment was undertaken as part of the FAO project “Low carbon and resilient livestock development strategies for climate informed investments”.
