Sharing expertise to quantify and mitigate GHG in the agriculture and land use sector in Argentine and the UK

Project Details


The main scientific objective of this project will be to explore opportunities to develop climate change mitigation in the agriculture sector by using a farm based modelling approach. The global community has agreed on the need to limit temperature increases above preindustrial levels, to a threshold of 1.5°C. Such an agreement is dependent on deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors. SRUC has focused its research on mitigation in the agriculture sector with research, applied and modelling approaches. This has particular importance for Argentina where 37% of the greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions originate from agriculture and land use change.
