SE Asia technical capability building workshop a success

The Governments of Thailand and New Zealand jointly hosted a 2-day workshop on measurement and mitigation of greenhouse gases in South-East Asian livestock systems, on 14/15 March 2012 in Bangkok, preceded by a field trip on 13 March to visit a CDM project that generates biogas from pig manure. Four countries participated in the workshop: Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Viet Nam.

The workshop was held under the auspices of the Livestock Research Group (LRG) of the Global Research Alliance, as part of a broader set of activities by the LRG to build regional capacity in developing countries to understand, estimate and identify opportunities for reducing the intensity of greenhouse gas emissions from livestock. The workshop was sponsored by the New Zealand government through its Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry as part of its support for the Global Research Alliance. Scientific inputs and discussions at the workshop were facilitated by the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre on behalf of the LRG, with expert inputs from a broad range of Alliance member countries and other relevant international organisations.

The workshop aimed to improve understanding of livestock systems in the region, showcase existing research programmes and document critical data, knowledge and capability gaps in order to identify activities that would help enhance the region’s ability to measure, monitor and develop options to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from livestock systems in a sustainable manner. A key goal of the workshop was to identify opportunities for future collaboration and coordinated capacity building activities in livestock mitigation research across South-East Asia countries.
