This core theme includes:
- Contributing to reductions and removals of GHG emissions through carbon sequestration, substitution of fossil-based energy and products, and mitigation of N2O and CH4 emissions by the agriculture and forestry sectors, while reducing the risk of GHG emissions associated with indirect land use change;
- Developing cost effective monitoring and verification methodologies of field, animal and farm scale GHG budgets, possibly including indirect land use and cradle to grave life cycle;
- Developing verifiable GHG mitigation and carbon sequestration measures in farming systems;
- Developing technologies and methods to substitute fossil-fuel energy through increased use of biomass and other renewable energies in the agriculture sector also ensuring climate resilient sustainable agriculture for food and non-food systems without jeopardising food security.
