Executive Summary

Currently, there is an increase in the demand for animal protein and it is estimated that by 2050 it will grow by 70%. This represents an opportunity for LAC countries that produce milk and milk derivatives to supply the internal and external market. However, the growth of livestock production could have significant environmental impacts related to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In addition, climate change (cycles and intensity of rainfall and temperature) threatens production and increases the vulnerability of milk production systems in the region.
To reduce these threats, milk production systems need to improve efficiency and productivity indicators, in order to achieve a sustainable intensification of the use of resources such as water, soil and climate. In this sense, this project seeks the development of digital tools that improve the capture of information from the production system and allow adjustment of management practices to implement climate-smart dairy establishments.

The technological solution

The project will generate digital tools (web platform, applications for mobile devices and computers) to monitor in real time productive, climatic and management aspects that allow the implementation of climate-smart dairy establishments in the region.


Generate new capacities for the dairy producer in Latin America and the Caribbean to implement sustainable management processes aimed at achieving climate-smart dairy establishments.
Implement a public-private network with technical capacity among participating countries for the development of a climate-smart dairy.
Develop digital tools (web platform, app for mobile devices and computers), based on good practices, for the management of climate-smart dairy establishments.
Train producers, technicians and extensionists in the use of technological tools for the sustainable management of dairy establishments.


  • 3000 milk producers
  • 20 organizations (cooperatives, associations, clusters and SMEs)
  • 200 professionals and technicians in the dairy sector
  • 300 students from technical and career schools linked to milk production
  • 10 milk processing companies and residents of 25 municipalities in Argentina, Uruguay, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Honduras trained with Agtech tools for milk production
