Funds for: Contributing to the reduction in GHG emissions
Main beneficiaries: Research centers, universities

Priorities and funded actions:

* Researches that contribute to GHG mitigation in European animal production systems, as well as a better understanding of consumer attitudes, household consumption of animal products and policy issues;
* Understanding the relevant effects along the value chain;
* Understanding the issues of food waste and loss that are directly related to animal products and their impact on agricultural GHG emissions

* Applied researches with an ICT dimension (including the use of sensors, communication technologies, data analytics, modelling, robotics, precision farming or decision support systems);
* Applied researches that combine the three pillars of sustainability (society, economy and environment)

Among financed actions
* Theme 1: Agroecological approach to whole animal production systems
– Sustainability assessment of the whole system; e.g. carbon & water footprints, life cycle assessment;
– Determination of the production system’s GHG efficiency, design and development of optimised systems to reduce emissions and enhance sustainability
* Theme 2: Technical options for the monitoring and mitigation of GHG emissions from animal production systems
– The feed chain (feed origin, harvest and processing);
– Animal nutrition (feed rations, feed additives and nutrient efficiency) and husbandry (including Precision Livestock Farming);
– Manure management and utilisation (including technological treatments, and regional cooperation);
– Refinement or development of GHG emission factors related to animal production systems with the aim of reducing uncertainties and supporting the development of improved and harmonised GHG inventories across participating countries
* Theme 3: Social and/or economic approach to livestock production and consumption of animal products
– Effects of consumption patterns and trends in the animal production sector (and vice versa) and implications for related GHG emissions;
– Inclusion of GHG emission reductions (an environmental “externality”) into the price of food of animal origin;
– Strategies and incentives, including policy measures, to reduce GHG emissions and remove barriers to adoption of GHG mitigation strategies
