Submission to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in relation to the Decision 4/CP.23


17/05/2018

Multi-stakeholder partnerships are necessary to build a common understanding of highly-debated technical issues so policy dialogue can progress. Multi-stakeholder partnerships enable dissemination and deploy effective and efficient solutions. The Livestock Environmental Assessment and Performance (LEAP) Partnership builds consensus on technical approaches to assess the environmental performance of feed and livestock supply chains so policy dialogue with stakeholders is quickly shifted from methodology harmonization to tangible action in order to meet national targets in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). LEAP is closely linked with the Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock (GASL), a multi-stakeholder initiative in charge of dialogue with stakeholders on policy scenarios for livestock production in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The LEAP Partnership welcomes Decision 4/CP.23, Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture, which emphasizes the key role of livestock supply chains and food security on the international climate agenda. The LEAP Partnership invites the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture to take advantage of the LEAP guidelines to support measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from feed and livestock supply chains by UNFCCC parties.

The LEAP guidelines assist countries, feed and livestock sectors to account for GHG emissions, soil carbon storage, nutrient and water use from livestock supply chains, and to populate national inventories relative to a base period. The LEAP guidelines help identify hotspots and track improvement towards sectoral national targets on GHG emission reduction.
