  • Food crops in a changing climate: report of a Royal Society discussion meeting

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This, the summary report of a Royal Society discussion meeting on food crops in a changing climate, outlines new research that demonstrates that the impact of climate change on crop yields and quality will be more severe than previously thought. It highlights the need for research to improve the resolution and complexity of climate models and the consequent requirement for enhanced computer power.

  • Strategies for mitigating climate change in agriculture: Abridged report

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This publication is the abridged version of the report ‘Strategies for mitigating climate change in agriculture: recommendations for philanthropy’. The report was designed to identify greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation options in the agricultural sector. It provides a snapshot of the global mitigation potential in the year 2030, compared to a hypothetical baseline in which no additional mitigation from agriculture is attempted, beyond current adoption and intensification trends.

  • Mitigating greenhouse gases in agriculture

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Prepared by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture, this in-depth report seeks to shed light on the climate mitigation potential of agriculture. It argues that with an increasing demand for food, global agriculture will soon become the dominant area of greenhouse emissions, with the two main sources being nitrous oxide from the soil and methane from animal farming (of particular concern as developing countries convert increasingly to a high-protein, 'western', diet). The scientific case for the significance of agricultural emissions is presented in parts one to six of the report.
