Reducing Enteric Methane for improving food security and livelihoods

Phase 2

  • The primary goal of Phase 2 is to catalyse widespread practice change in ruminant livestock production systems that will: result in increased efficiency and a greater contribution to food security along with other social, economic goals; whilst at the same time reducing emissions of enteric methane per unit of product.
  • Phase 2 work will achieve this goal by:
    • Supporting the mainstreaming methane mitigation into national planning 
    • Establishing an enabling environment for enteric methane mitigation
    • Advocating and building new opportunities for methane mitigation

In Uruguay

In Uruguay

Phase 2 project will collaborate with the GEF-FAO project “Climate-smart Livestock Production and Land Restoration in the Uruguayan Rangelands” to support on-farm monitoring of the impact of improved practices and generate improved methane emission factors to improve their national monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system in an effort to enhance mitigation ambition.

In Bangladesh

In Bangladesh

The main activities of the Phase 2 project is to mainstream methane mitigation in the Livestock and Dairy Development Project (LDDP), a 500 million dollar investment from the World Bank (WB). The project is providing technical support to the World Bank in developing an annex project aiming to measure and report methane emissions reduction associated with productivity gains achieved through the LDDP.    This project entitled “Article 6 project” intends to bring together the livestock development objectives of the Government of Bangladesh and its strong commitments to address climate change.

In Ethiopia

In Ethiopia

The project will collaborate with the World Bank (‘WB’) supported investment project, “the Livestock and Fisheries Sector Development Project (‘LFSDP’) to support on-farm monitoring of the impact of improved practices and generate improved methane emission factors to improve their national MRV system in an effort to enhance mitigation ambition.

In East Africa and Latin America

In East Africa and Latin America

The project will provide an enabling environment for enteric methane mitigation to become a mainstream activity in livestock development. The project will create opportunities for funding of methane mitigation through support to the development of mitigation policy actions for the livestock sector and development of the institutional and individual capacity required to disseminate the improved technologies and practices.

Phase 2 will replicate activities carried out during Phase 1, in countries/regions not previously included in the initial phase, with the aim of identifying and assessing opportunities for methane reduction from ruminant systems.
