Map highlights opportunities for climate adaptation through livestock

A new map launched by members of the Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) community  sheds light on the important role that livestock play in building climate resilience for rural communities. The map features 20 innovations crowdsourced from organisations working around the world to improve the lives of livestock keepers and their animals.

Local innovations include drought-tolerant breeds, better feeds and data-driven advisory tools for farmers.

As the COP26 Climate Talks get underway in Glasgow, this project offers valuable evidence for policy makers to address the role that livestock play in climate adaptation, rural development, and global food security

The Livestock and Climate Resilience map is a joint production of SEBI-Livestock, The Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health (CTLGH), the Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Security (GAAFS) (all at the University of Edinburgh), and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). These organisations are members of the Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) Community of practice.
