On the 21st of November the joint exploratory workshop of FACCE-JPI and ERA-NET SusAn will bring together researchers, stakeholders and policy makers in Brussels. The aim of the workshop is to assess the current state of the art of the phenotyping/genotyping and novel breeding techniques in the livestock sector conducted in the EU, to identify existing networks and their major stakeholders, and to identify major challenges and specific opportunities related to adaptation and mitigation to climate change from different perspectives but focusing on the role of breeding to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (methane but also nitrogen oxide emissions, feed efficiency especially in case of low quality feeds) and to improve the ability of animals to cope with heat stress.
