Final report of the GGELS-project on the "Evaluation of the livestock sector's contribution to the EU greenhouse gas emissions" and detailed results of the LCA analysis. The study included the implementation of an LCA (life-cycle assessment) approach into the CAPRI model including update of GHG-calculation modules, as well as an ex-ante according to the latest CAPRI projections for the year 2020 and an explorative assessment of technological and policy mitigation options. Ancillary assessments are made on a description of livestock systems in Europe, the GHG emissions related to imported meat product and livestock's impact on biodiversity. GGELS was commissioned by the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development to the Joint Research Centre and run from 09/2008-12/2010.
