Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture

25.01.2011, Age: 2641 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.
