Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture

25.01.2011, Age: 3927 days

Meeting the challenges of food security and climate change. Discussion meeting hosted by The Royal Society, London, 28 February - 1 March 2011.

The Climate Change Act (2008) commits the UK to 80% statutory greenhouse gases emissions reduction by 2050 across all sectors of the economy. Farming and land use are responsible for about 7.4% of total UK emissions. Delivering the expectation that we should gain the increases in food production required from a growing population, while reducing agricultural emissions and adapting to climate change presents a unique scientific challenge this meeting proposes to explore.

Confirmed speakers and chairs include Professor Sir John Beddington FRS, Dr Dave Chadwick, Professor Ian Crute, Professor Eric Davidson, Dr Keith Goulding, Lord Krebs of Wytham Kt FRS, Professor Steve Long, Lord May of Oxford OM AC Kt FRS, Dr Dominic Moran, Professor John Pickett CBE FRS, Dr David Powlson, Dr E-Detlef Schulze and Professor Pete Smith
