Description

Abstract:

Among the major challenges currently faced by humanity are food security and climate change. Agriculture plays a significant role in both. Adapting to climate change is expected to be an increasing issue for agriculture and food security in the next decades. At the same time, agriculture is part of the solution in mitigating climate change: by both reducing and sequestering terrestrial greenhouse gas emissions, interventions in agriculture can reduce human caused net emissions of greenhouse gases.
