Oct 11-12, 2020: Water use assessment of livestock production systems and supply chains, Berlin
The expert-workshop serves to advance and harmonize methods and techniques and improve water use in livestock production systems. The workshop is held in Berlin, organized by ATB and Massey University of New Zealand, and funded by the OECD Co-operative Research Programme Biological Resource Management for Sustainable Agricultural Systems.
The expert-workshop will assess the implementation of guidelines for water use developed by the Technical Advisory Group for FAO’s Livestock Environmental Assessment and Performance (LEAP) Partnership.
The workshop will advance and harmonise methods and techniques to assess and improve water use in livestock productions systems and supply chains by analysing case studies in which the recently developed LEAP guidelines were applied.
Different livestock water use assessment methodologies will be reviewed for their scientific robustness and practicality, focussing on the water scarcity footprint and water productivity indicators, the model calculations, data requirements and scale of analysis to help provide a sound understanding of the pressure exerted by the livestock production sector on water resources to support improvements to livestock water productivity and a reduction of its contribution to water scarcity.
The workshop is funded by the OECD Co-operative Research Programme Biological Resource Management for Sustainable Agricultural Systems.
