Title: Regional support to national livestock GHG inventories in Southern Africa - Eswatini

Funded by: Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), New Zealand

Delivered by: NZAGRC, Food Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN), University of Pretoria (UP)

This project supported Eswatini to develop and compile a GHG inventory for dairy and other cattle using the IPCC Tier 2 method. The inventory was compiled using the best available information, including with reference to a regional database of activity data compiled by FANRPAN. An inventory report was produced describing the results, data sources, methods and improvement priorities. The inventory was validated in a national workshop, at which improvements in institutional arrangements to support ongoing inventory management were also discussed.

Organisations receiving support: University of Eswatini; Climate Change Unit, Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Affairs.
