Short introductive summary: Assessing the Social, Economic and Environmental Effects of "Integrated Manure Management" as Low-Carbon Transition Pathway in the Livestock Sector in the Netherlands

Our study focusses on low carbon transitions in areas with high livestock densities in the Netherlands. The study assesses the risks and uncertainties in relation to two alternative transition pathways that can be implemented in order to meet climate and other environmental objectives. The following two pathways are considered. 1. Integrated Manure Management; IMM, and Reduction of Livestock; RL). The study is one of the case studies of the EU funded (H2020) project, TRANSrisk ( that aims to identify and assess the risks and uncertainties related to implementing low carbon transition pathways in various countries.
