Webinar: Data tools to unlock climate finance for livestock development

-
(New York)
Virtual

In low-and middle-income countries, organisations working in the livestock sector are interested in accessing climate finance to support actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from livestock, particularly methane. A key step to reducing emissions is understanding the environmental impacts of farming. But data and tools for making these assessments are often scattered or unsuitable for use in LMIC context. Livestock sector access to climate finance remains low. Despite these challenges, solutions are available! 

Join us on 21 March for a webinar on harnessing data tools to unlock climate finance for methane abatement in the livestock sector.  Participants will gain valuable insights into leveraging data tools to build the case for investment in livestock development projects. 

The session is hosted by Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) in collaboration with the Agriculture Hub of the UNEP-convened Climate and Clean Air Coalition and the World Bank.

Objectives

  • Explore the use and application of different data tools in impact assessments. 

  • Promote the LD4D environmental assessment tools navigator

  • Support and encourage knowledge exchange on the potential use of these tools in climate finance projects

  • Explore how tools can be further developed to assist countries. 

Audience

This webinar is designed for policymakers, researchers, investment case developers, project implementers, and funders in the agriculture sector. This may include:

  • Project managers looking for data on project-level environmental impacts, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and emissions potential.  
  • National-level policymakers or analysts working in an agriculture or livestock department seeking to understand where the biggest opportunities are for reducing emissions in a country’s livestock sector.
  • Anyone seeking data to develop an investment case for climate finance for livestock 
  • Funders seeking to understand how the livestock sector can contribute to emissions reductions
