National policies on manure utilization and GHG mitigation in other countries


Animal manure is a useful resource when handled carefully, but it can also be a source of significant problems and public health issues when handled incorrectly. Animal manure handling may provide risks to the quality of the land, water, and air. Despite this, some areas continue to use non-sustainable animal waste management techniques. Sustainable animal manure management necessitates multifaceted techniques and provides several benefits to both farmers and the general population. The significance placed on manure handling and management in various nations has resulted in the implementation of necessary legislation, rules, standards, and policies to encourage sustainable animal manure handling. Some of these are put in place at the local, state, national, regional, and international levels. For effective treatment of animal manure, a variety of approaches are available, ranging from basic, low-cost procedures to sophisticated strategies.
