The objectives of this paper are to review the effect of the Poultry industry on global warming and climate change. Livestock production in general and poultry production, in particular, contributes to global warming through emissions of methane and nitrous oxide. Poultry production is affected by the impact of climate change and also contributes to it. On the other way, the demand for animal-source food is increasing because of population growth; rising income and urbanization, and food preferences. Poultry protein production for human consumption is relatively cheap and egg and meat are sources of high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals in human consumption. Poultry contributes to climate change by emitting greenhouse gases (GHG) either directly from manure management or indirectly from feed-production activities, conversion of forests into croplands. Most of the publications reviewed indicated that, from all indications, the majority of GHG emissions generated from the poultry industry occurs during the production stage and specifically come from propane and electricity use. Based on different research reports, the magnitudes of environmental impacts are highly dependent on production practices and especially manure management. Many literature reviews reported that, some mitigation strategies are included, farm management, manure management, nutrition management, and feed production. Therefore, poultry farmers must constantly pursue advancements in housing technology to improve their farms in order to be competitive and successful while minimizing the detrimental effects of global climate change.
