To improve the methodologies available to national inventory compilers to estimate the direct and indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from livestock production systems, with a particular emphasis on manure management and grassland management.
To assist inventory compilers in estimating and documenting the impact of mitigation measures relevant to livestock production systems on the emissions reported within national inventories.
To provide improved algorithms and emission factors for use in farm-scale GHG decision support systems (DSSs).
To develop an open-access prototype farm-scale GHG DSS.
To improve methods to assess the costs and savings associated with mitigation measures at the farm and national scales.
