    Terminal evaluation of the project “Promoting climate-smart livestock management in the Dominican Republic”
    Project code: GCP/DOM/019/GFF - GEF ID: 10054
    2024
    Also available in:

    The project "Promoting Climate-Smart Livestock in the Dominican Republic", implemented between June 2018 and November 2022, has had the objective of "Mitigating climate change and restoring degraded lands through the promotion of climate-smart practices in the livestock sector." The evaluation estimates that, as a result of the implementation of the project, the convenience and importance of promoting climate-smart livestock practices as effective tools for mitigation and adaptation to climate change were installed on the government's climate and agricultural agenda. In addition, the project contributed to generating evidence on the positive effects that certain livestock practices have on climate change mitigation and adaptation and on the restoration of degraded lands. Finally, the contribution to the development of individual and institutional capacities in the Dominican State, technology transfer and adoption of good practices of beneficiary producers, among other achievements, is highlighted.

    Livestock Development Project (PRODEL) aims to improve access to livestock services (e.g. animal health), high quality inputs such as improved genetic material, feed and fodder, technical training and capacity building. It does so through financially supporting business plans (BP) with improved animal production practices and the pastoral resource management plans (PRMP) with restored pasture, fodder fields, zoosanitary parks and pastoral boreholes using solar energy. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) used the Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model-interactive (GLEAM-i) to assess the impact of PRODEL activities on total emissions, emissions intensity (i.e. emissions produced per unit of product) and protein production. The assessment covered 263 BPs implemented in all 10 regions and 30 PRMPs distributed in four regions of the country. Experiences from PRODEL can be valorized to other national projects, contribute further to the development of the national strategy on climate smart livestock and to meeting the national climate commitments.

    Livestock diversity or animal genetic resources are terms used to describe the pool of 38 species of domesticated birds and mammals with more than 8 800 breeds currently used for food and agriculture. This infographic shows how livestock diversity can help us to adapt to a hotter and harsher world and make us more resilient to the hazards posed by climate change such as drought, floods and disease.
