The Greenhouse Gas & Animal Agriculture (GGAA) conference is the world’s premier event on livestock emissions research. Every three years it brings together leading scientists and policy makers to review current knowledge and present significant new developments and advances in measuring, modelling and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from animal agriculture.

The 2019 GGAA event spans four scientific sessions:

  1. Technical advances from genomics to precision agriculture that will address aspects relating to measuring and modelling GHGs (covering nitrous oxide, methane, soil carbon, carbon dynamics/balance, modelling)
  2. Farm-level low carbon initiatives, addressing mitigation and adaptation strategies to provide more resilient production systems
  3. Regional low carbon initiatives, including landscape, regional management and national commitments
  4. International low carbon initiatives, including examples from the IPCC, World Bank, UNFCCC, FAO etc.

The call for abstracts is now open, closing 20 April 2019. An early-bird discount is available for registrations up until 20 March 2019. See www.ggaa2019.org for more details. 

This year’s GGAA is also the location for the 2019 Livestock Research Group meeting. For details, please see here.
