This spotlight focuses on livestock, a critical component of economic and food production systems in Africa. Because livestock are both at risk from climate change and a source of it, it is important to not only consider strategies for adaptation, but also mitigation. Use this Observable Notebook data tool to:

  • Explore the growth in different populations of livestock over time, along with their associated changes in Value of Production and Greenhouse Gas Emissions
  • See which countries would be most impactful to focus on given a particular weighting between adaptation and mitigation
  • Learn about specific, real-world solutions and the potential constraints to adopting them
