    The adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015 paved the way for countries to commit to the international response to climate change, through the transition to a low-emission economy and the development of a climate-resilient future. The Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) is a landmark decision that was reached at the UN Climate Conference (COP23) in November 2017. The KJWA roadmap offered the opportunities to discuss the role of agri-food systems in climate action while considering their vulnerability to climate change and addressing food security. The KJWA can play a crucial role in enabling the livestock sector to contribute to climate action by mobilizing knowledge, technology, finance and capacity. It acknowledges the strategic importance of livestock including key areas such as improved soil carbon sequestration in grazed grasslands, improved nutrient use and manure management and improved livestock management systems. The KJWA process offers good opportunities for countries to exchange views and experiences related to the inclusion of livestock in their national climate actions. This brief summarises the outcomes of a series of regional workshops on “Boosting Koronivia in the livestock sector” organised by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) from 30 September to 22 October 2020. The workshops, attended by 35 countries from Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean, provided a platform for countries to exchange experiences and discuss how the KJWA can support climate actions on livestock while delivering the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

    Asia is the world’s largest producer of pork, comprising 56 percent of global pork production. Pig farming is the most important livestock related livelihood activity in the region contributing to about 20–30 percent of household income. With the largest share of market in terms of livestock production and relatively high emission intensities for beef and pork, Southeast Asia is also the second highest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the world. The ASEAN Strategic Plan of Action for Cooperation on Livestock (2016–2020) provides key signals and strategic direction for ‘sustainable livestock production and trade to contribute to growth, poverty alleviation, food security, and improved nutrition’. The ASEAN Negotiators Group on Agriculture (ANGA) developed a common position related to “improved livestock management systems, including agro pastoral production systems and others" (UNFCCC, 2020) and submitted to the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA). The main purpose of this knowledge brief is to highlight the several key priority actions for the livestock sector and emphasized the need for scaling up financial support, technology transfer and capacity building needs for the livestock sector in order to advance work under the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA).
