Webinar: The launch of the GLEAM Dashboard

October 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CEST

FAO’s Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model (GLEAM) provides a wealth of high-resolution greenhouse gas (GHG) emission data relating to livestock systems globally. These estimates are used by diverse stakeholders – including the private sector, countries and international organizations – to understand the nature and origins of GHG emissions from livestock systems, and so to help design and plan effective climate action in the sector. This FAO Science and Innovation Forum's side event will mark the release of the latest estimates…

XXI International N Workshop

October 24 @ 8:00 am - October 28 @ 5:00 pm CEST

Agro-food systems are fuelled by nitrogen. About 80% of this valuable resource is lost to the environment before reaching our plates. We refer to this loss as nitrogen waste. The ambitious goal of halving nitrogen waste by 2030 requires important coordination of many actors: multidisciplinary scientists, farmers, industry, policy-makers, NGOs, and consumers. The XXI International N Workshop will contribute to this challenge by welcoming contributions dealing with different spatial scales (from the plot to global) and system scopes (crop, livestock,…

Webinar: Policies in pursuit of a low emission agri-food sector

October 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CEST

This event is part of the OECD COP27 Virtual Pavilion. The agriculture and food sector (agri-food sector) is vulnerable to climate change and at the same time also a significant sources of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Reducing GHG emissions from the agri-food sector will be important in moving towards net-zero targets. There are various opportunities for the agri-food sector to reduce GHG emissions, yet the sector faces many complex challenges and lags behind others on climate change commitments and…
