Aug. 22-24, 2016
Fukuoka, Japan
Background / Highlights of Activity

Climate change, such as global warming, is one of the biggest issues facing the world today. In order to meet the mission of the Food and Fertilizer Technology Center (FFTC), it’s a matter of urgency to establish a proper integration of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures for small-scale farmers, because under heat stress from global warming the quantity and quality of the products of livestock have been decreasing. Livestock contribute both directly and indirectly to global warming through the emissions of Greenhouse gases (GHG) such as carbon dioxide, methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O). Globally, the livestock sector contributes 18 percent (7.1 billion tons CO2 equivalent) of GHG emissions. Methane emissions mostly occur as enteric fermentation and manure management in livestock operations. Nitrous oxide emissions are associated with manure management and the application and deposition of manure. To cope with the climate-change induced negative impacts, it is imperative 1) to properly manage GHG emissions from livestock production systems and 2) to undertake the challenge for generating future mitigating strategies from livestock production systems. FFTC, the NARO Institute of Livestock and Grassland Science (NILGS), Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS) and Japanese Society of Animal Science (JSAS), and Asian-Australasian Association of Animal Production Societies (AAAP) join hands to collaborate to organize the proposed a satellite workshop of the Annual conference of AAAP in 2016 to share the latest advances in understanding the climate-change related problems as well as newly-developed doable technologies that increase productivity, efficiency, resilience, adaptive capacity, and mitigation potential of animal production system facing the problems.
