GLEAM-i, an interactive tool to assess GHG emissions in the livestock sector – Anne Mottet


Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Published on Apr 21, 2016

Anne Mottet, FAO, presents the Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model interactive (GLEAM-i), a public simulation tool to support countries and partners in calculating emissions in the livestock sector.

Anne briefly explains the context of climate change and livestock production, as well as how FAO supports countries in developing sustainable livestock policies. She also introduces the role of GLEAM in that strategy, highlighting the added value of the publicly available version: GLEAM-interactive.

The livestock sector is a key contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. However, the potential for significant mitigation exists across systems, regions and species. This video presents GLEAM-i and explains how to use it to generate disaggregated emissions from livestock using Tier 2 methods.

The model covers the main stages of production: herd management, feed and manure management. Users can modify key parameters such as fertility and mortality rates, feed ration composition of the share of each manure management system, effectively impacting emissions.

This webinar was part of a learning event focused on the functionalities of GLEAM-i and its potential to quickly generate intervention scenarios in the context of mitigation in the livestock sector organized by the MICCA programme at the Food and Agriculture Organization in April 2016.

#EarthDay: As Paris Deal Is Signed, Gulf Coast Residents Demand End to Drilling — Entirely


Democracy Now!

Published on Apr 22, 2016

http://democracynow.org – As the world marks Earth Day, more than 60 heads of state meet at the United Nations headquarters to sign the Paris climate agreement aimed at slowing climate change. Many countries still need to formally approve the agreement, which will only enter into force when it is ratified by 55 nations that account for 55 percent of man-made greenhouse gas emissions. Experts say the cuts promised in the deal are insufficient to avert dangerous global warming. This comes as Gulf Coast communities marked the sixth anniversary of the BP oil spill by demanding no new drilling. For more, we speak to reporter Antonia Juhasz. Her new report in Rolling Stone is “Six Years After BP Gulf Oil Spill, Residents Demand ‘No New Drilling.'” Her most recent book is “Black Tide: The Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill.”
