Reducing Enteric Methane for improving food security and livelihoods

The project

“Reducing enteric methane for improving food security and livelihoods” is a collaboration between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (the FAO) and the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (the NZAGRC).

The project aims to support low and middle income countries to identify system-specific technologies and interventions to increase livestock productivity, food security and reduce enteric methane emissions per unit of product. The project also seeks to provide guidance to decision-makers with recommendations on incentives and institutional frameworks necessary to incentivize adoption of productivity-enhancing technologies and practices.
