Tackling Climate Change through livestock
Webinar – Introduction to LEAP Life Cycle Assessment Guidelines
The LEAP partnership and the MICCA Programme hosted a webinar to introduce three sector specific Life Cycle Assessment guidelines focusing on the poultry, small ruminant and animal feed supply chains. The guidelines present a methodology for the assessment of the environmental performance of livestock supply chains. This initiative represented an important step towards coordinated cross-sectoral and international effort to harmonize measurement approaches. The webinar was followed by a facilitated online discussion.
The purpose for the webinar was to seek out public feedback on draft guidelines with the aim of strengthening the guidance provided and ensure their relevance in a broad range of situations.
