Greenhouse gas mitigation potentials in the livestock sector

Sadie Shelton

This article estimates the GHG emissions for the livestock sector between 1995 and 2005. Livestock accounts for up to half of the technical mitigation potential of the agriculture, forestry and land-use sectors. This study discusses management options and the economic potential of these management alternatives.
