Livestock and environment statistics: manure and greenhouse gas emissions. Global, regional and country trends, 1990–2018

Livestock statistics made available in FAOSTAT offer valuable information on livestock numbers and production, provided by FAO by country and over a long period. This data is used by the academic community to estimate relevant environmental statistics and indicators, including the availability and use of livestock manure and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Such information is key to help designing and implementing sustainable agricultural practices. The estimates of livestock manure are computed and disseminated in FAOSTAT by livestock type, by country, and in regional aggregates, for the period 1961–2018. The latest FAOSTAT analytical brief provides information on the period 1990–2018.
