Innovation to tackle climate change. Generating facts about feed additives and livestock production

Virtual Meeting

The general objective of the event is to raise awareness about the FAO LEAP guidelines to assess the environmental impacts of feed additives, from their production to their use in diverse livestock systems and regions. More specifically, the event will provide an opportunity to learn about feed additives and animal feeding, how they relate to food safety and food quality, and to what extent they can represent a bold action for the climate and the environment. The event will, finally, discuss strategies to make innovation and associated environmental benefits visible through knowledge transfer mechanisms.

Biodiversity and the livestock sector. Mitigating harms and maximizing benefits

Virtual Meeting

How to assess the link between livestock and biodiversity? How to develop and adopt biodiversity-friendly practices in diverse production system? This virtual event will introduce the new FAO LEAP publication for the assessment of the effects of livestock production on wild biodiversity. Participants will also hear from various stakeholders, what they do to integrate livestock as a solution to biodiversity loss, and how they contribute to sustainable livestock production in different contexts.
