Assessing the environmental performance of animal feed supply chains

ILRI scientists Ben Lukuyu was part of the team that produced a set of draft guidelines to assess the environmental performance of animal feeds supply chains.

The methodology developed in these draft guidelines aims to introduce a harmonized international approach to the assessment of the environmental performance of animal feed supply chains in a manner that takes account of the specificity of the various production systems involved. It aims to increase understanding of animal feed supply chains and to help improve their environmental performance. The guidelines are a product of the Livestock Environmental Assessment and Performance (LEAP) Partnership, a multi-stakeholder initiative whose goal is to improve the environmental sustainability of the livestock sector through better metrics and data.
