This analytical report analyses some of the key issues linking climate change and development practices in livestock and farming systems. It draws on knowledge gained from IFAD (International Fund for Agricultural Development)-supported projects and programmes, and documents some of the experiences and the lessons learned in addressing livestock and climate change. The report also briefly examines the different effects of climate change on livestock, agricultural management and gender issues. It builds on these concepts and strategies to provide recommendations for project design, together with possible solutions promoting both adaptation and mitigation activities in development projects.
