The Charter [PDF] is the Alliance’s governing document. It describes the challenges of climate change and food security affecting the global agricultural sector and the Alliance’s place in helping respond to these. It sets out the institutions and governance arrangements for the Alliance, its structure and activities, and the process for becoming a member. It was first signed by Alliance Ministers at a Summit in Italy in June 2011.

Membership is open to any State represented by its competent authority (e.g. the nominated lead government department or agency for involvement in the Alliance). Participation in the Alliance is on a voluntary basis and it is for each country to determine the nature and extent of its participation in any Alliance activities. A country’s membership is confirmed by formally endorsing the Charter.

New member countries are always welcome. Learn how your country can join the Alliance or for more information on the process of becoming an Alliance Member Country Contact Us.

The Alliance is focused on increasing research cooperation and investment in mitigation practices and technologies in order to develop more efficient and productive agricultural systems.

There is a great deal of work underway in this area in governments around the world and one of the Alliance’s main aims is to provide a framework to bring this closer together. But there is also a wealth of work happening on agricultural greenhouse gas research, technology development and extension outside of governments.

The Alliance recognises and provides for this through the creation of formal partnerships with other relevant organisations. These partnerships are intended to help ensure maximum efficiency of the global research effort and to create a greater ability to identify opportunities for coordination and collaboration both within and outside the Alliance.

Partner organisations have been identified for their expertise, scope of work and capacity to support efforts to reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon sequestration by improving the efficiency and productivity of agricultural systems.

How to become a Partner

Alliance Partnerships are established by invitation from the Alliance Council. If your organisation is interested in being a Partner of the Alliance, please Contact Us.

Other ways to participate

Participation in the Alliance is not just restricted to member countries or formal Partners. The Research and Cross-Cutting Groups can develop scientific collaborations with other organisations relevant to their Group and can invite individuals or institutions to work with them on key activities, specific goals and/or projects. To find out more about the work of these Groups, please see the Research pages.

In addition, interested individuals in the work of the Alliance can subscribe to our mailing list to receive regular updates and news articles. Please use the ‘Subscribe to Updates’ link at the bottom of the page.
