The overall objective of Re-Livestock is to understand and mobilize adoption of innovative practices, applied cross-scale (animal, herd/farm, sector and region), to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of livestock farming and to increase the capacity for dealing with climate change impacts, in order to ultimately increase the overall resilience of the livestock sector.

To reach this aim, the consortium has brought together scientific excellence and technical expertise, from across Europe and disciplines, to develop novel and scientifically supported integrated approaches targeted to different livestock systems and geographic regions in the context of climate change.

Strong collaboration with industry stakeholders and partners to identify the innovations and to co-design their validation will ensure relevance and will maximise the adoption of best practices.

National case studies and stakeholders forums, together with a European multi-actor platform, will allow for an engaged co-design of transition pathways by using unique food system models, whilst innovative experimental work will allow for the testing and sharing of the latest innovative solutions.

An ambitious communication strategy will extend the multi-actor approach to a broad range of stakeholders to create a community of practice.

Forest Flows

Forest Flows is a five year research programme (September 2019 to September 2024) focusing on forest hydrology. 

Lead by Scion throught the MBIE-supported programme, the Forest Flows is a New Zealand project focusing on developing methods to predict and optimise water use and supply in planted forests to answer the questions: Where is the water? Where is it going? And who gets to use it?
