    Livestock is crucial to Kenya's economy and socio-cultural practices, but it also contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. Climate-smart agriculture and sustainable livestock management practices can help Kenya achieve its climate change targets and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while ensuring food and nutrition security. This report presents the key outcomes and recommendations of a national stakeholder workshop FAO organized in December 2022 to address climate change in Kenya's livestock sector.

    Climate change and climate action is critical within the livestock sector as it is not only heavily affected by climate change, but also a notable contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, mainly methane. Addressing methane emissions from livestock presents a dual opportunity: enhancing resilience to climate impacts while mitigating emissions to achieve goals set out in the Paris Agreement. This subprogramme was designed to address national climate actions and integrate specific and actionable mitigation and adaptation measures related to the livestock sector into Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC). It worked with member governments and national stakeholders in eight countries (Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Rwanda, Senegal, the United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe) to mainstream climate change into national policies and livestock sector development programmes and integrate cost-beneficial mitigation options in national action plans, strategies through multi-stakeholder collaboration.
