Workshop on Synergies between Climate Action, SDGs, Sustainable Consumption and Production in the Livestock Sector

January 24, 2020

On Friday, January 24th, 2020, SLYCAN Trust will conduct a workshop to better understand Sri Lanka’s livestock sector and the nexus of sustainable consumption and production (SCP), climate change, and sustainable development. The multi-stakeholder consultative workshop is part of ongoing research conducted to analyse Sri Lanka’s policies and plans in the sector and identify potential synergies among climate change commitments, SDGs, and activities related to SCP in the livestock sector of Sri Lanka. 

The livestock sector is among the sectors focused by Sri Lanka’s climate commitments under the Paris Agreement which focus on adapting the sector to the adverse impacts of climate change. 

The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with its seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has become the universally endorsed framework applicable to all countries. SDG 12 on sustainable consumption and production plays a key role in regard to economic sectors and the way through which development can be achieved in a sustainable and ethical manner.

The workshop will present preliminary findings of the on-going research, and further explore synergies between the livestock sector, sustainable development, and climate change in a multi-stakeholder driven process, taking into account topics such as just transition, emission reduction, cleaner production, and human health.
