Livestock project in March WFO Farmletter

The March edition of the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) Farmletter focuses on livestock and includes an article outlining a project from the Livestock Research Group’s workplan, ‘Reducing enteric methane for improving food security and livelihoods’ – a joint initiative of the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (NZAGRC). The project will design cost-effective intervention packages for specific production systems, aimed to improve farm productivity, food security and rural livelihoods.

The project is funded by the GRA Partners Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and the FAO, and by the New Zealand Government.
