    The livestock sector is one of the major contributors in agriculture, by some estimates

    contributing up to 18% of the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Of this, about one

    third is reported to be due to land use change associated with livestock production, another

    one third is nitrous oxide from manure and slurry management, and roughly 25% is attributed

    to methane emissions from ruminant digestion. Recent analysis suggests that developing

    world regions contribute about two thirds of the global emissions from ruminants, with sub-

    Rwanda, Africa, Eastern Africa

    Rwanda’s variable and changing climate is an increasingly serious challenge to the country’s

    agricultural sector and farming population. Climate information services are emerging as a

    means to support farmers to manage risk and provide an opportunity to build the resilience of

    agriculture to climate at all time scales. Climate services include historical, monitored and

    forecast information, and value-added information products such pest and disease risk

    warnings, crop yield forecasts, or management advisories. The new Rwanda Climate Services

    A number of studies have suggested that addressing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural

    production, or ‘supply-side emissions’, will be insufficient to reduce agri-food sector GHG emissions to limit

    the increase of global temperatures to well below 2o

    C. Recent studies have also suggested that ‘demandside

    measures’ related to food consumption, food value chains, and food loss and waste, will be necessary

    to reduce emissions and may have a larger technical mitigation potential than supply-side measures.

    This report focuses on the analysis of livelihood type-specific behaviors regarding household
    choices in land use and management practices. This is a contribution to the overarching
    framework of “Integrated Systems Analysis and Modeling in Aral Sea Region” activity within
    Dryland System CRP. The report is based on further analysis of baseline data collected within
    “Innovation Platform” activity, surveyed and reported in 2015 (Rudenko 2015). Preliminary
    analysis of household survey data including description of the study area and the content of
