Greenhouse Gas mitigation efforts in Agriculture – from research to policy and practice

Greenhouse Gas mitigation efforts in Agriculture – from research to policy and practice
Over 300 scientists, policy makers and stakeholders meet in Berlin for the “International Conference of Agricultural GHG Emissions and Food Security – Connecting research to policy and practice” from 10-13 of September 2018. The participants discuss options and barriers for implementing agricultural GHG mitigation measures while ensuring food security.

With the Paris Agreement in 2015 all countries and sectors are required to enhance mitigation efforts in order to reduce temperature rise below 2° Celsius. Agriculture is causing 10-12 % of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change AR5 (IPCCC). Exchange of new research findings and solutions for implementing measurements in different parts of the world is key. The conference brings together working groups involving established scientists, high-level stakeholders from international organisations and the public and private sector. They elaborate collectively on future pathways for enhanced climate mitigation efforts. Issues range from livestock, to cropland, rice and soil management, as well as food consumption and policy. Keynote speakers are Andy Reisinger (IPCCC), René Castro Salazar (Food and Agriculture Organization), Jerzy Bogdan Plewa (European Commission) and Theo de Jager (World Farmers’ Organisation).

This conference is jointly organised by the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA), the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) with support from the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture and the Thünen Institute. The conference runs in parallel to the GRA council meeting where Germany is succeeding the chair in 2018.
