An informational poster that outlines a Global Research Alliance and Food and Agriculture Organisation project to reduce enteric methane emissions. The poster highlights the reasons for reducing enteric methane, the steps farmers can take, and the locations and process of participating enteric methane reduction projects.

This project complements existing initiatives by developing baseline emissions profiles in beef production systems in South America (Argentina, Uruguay), and dairy production systems in Sub Saharan Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Benin, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Mali, and Niger) and South Asia (Bangladesh, Sri Lanka). It will identify packages of existing low-cost or no-cost mitigation measures that lso increase productivity and thus deliver against food security and development goals, and understand barriers to uptake and the economic costs and benefits of the measures. The goal is to identify packages of measures that fit local farm systems, resources and capabilities and avoid inadvertent trade-offs.

This project is funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, the FAO and the New Zealand Government in support of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases.
