Climate change impacts on livestock

Published by CGIAR,

This Working Paper (PDF) of CGIAR summarizes projected climate change impacts on livestock across Africa. It uses a combination of literature review and some new results on the projected impacts of climate change on the range-lands of Africa. Findings show that there are many options that can help livestock keepers adapt, but there are no options that are widely applicable and have no constraints to their adoption. Therefore, an enabling technical and policy environment will be needed to ensure livestock keepers can adapt to climate change and enhance their livelihoods and food security.
