Strategies for Coordinated Reduction of Pollution and Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Animal Manure


China’s commitment to peaking its carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060 is a significant and well-conceived strategic decision made by the central government. It concerns the sustainable development of China and the building of a community with a shared future for mankind. Emission reduction and carbon sequestration in animal husbandry is a crucial approach to achieve carbon peak and neutrality and enjoys profound research potential. Based on analyzing the current status, trends of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and relevant policies relevant to animal manure management at home and abroad, the recent development of animal husbandry and recycling utilization of animal manure in China, the report proposes policy suggestions such as improving manure storage and treatment, science- based monitoring and evaluation of greenhouse emissions in the livestock sector, and facilitating the access of animal husbandry to the carbon trading market, to provide support for the policies and actions on emission reduction and carbon sequestration in the agricultural sector.
