A recording of the second session of the Inventories and NDC (I&NDC) Network 2022 Webinar Series titled “National agriculture inventory data collection and management” is now available to view.

Policies for agriculture mitigation strategies are shaped by accurate national agriculture emissions estimates. However, estimates are only as good as the data that underpin them. National activity data collection and its management is a universal challenge for compilers from Annex I and non-Annex II countries alike.

The aim of this webinar was to increase awareness on overcoming a lack of good quality data, and on setting up data management frameworks to support increasing emissions reporting from Tier 1 to Tier 2 levels.

The session brought together expert speakers whose work focuses on improving agriculture inventory activity data related issues.

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) has published the first of three calls for proposals for 2022 to support implementation of the 2030 Strategy. A total of $9 million of CCAC funding is available this year.

Funding for the first call aims at advancing national policy and planning to reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in 23 countries.

  • Opening date: 8 June 2022
  • Closing date: 30 June 2022
  • Total Estimated cost: US$ 3,000,000

The next two calls will support SLCP mitigation in the main emitting sectors, both through national government and industry actions.

Info Webinar: 2022 Joint Research Call between Ireland and New Zealand

May 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am IST

New Joint Research Mechanism on climate and agriculture launched between Ireland and New Zealand The Joint Research Initiative enables research calls to address the impact of high to medium-intensity grassland livestock systems on the climate and the environment. It builds on established research links between Ireland and New Zealand and strengthens existing cooperation and collaboration between funders and researchers on a bi-lateral basis. The first research call under this initiative has been launched – “Strategies, technologies and novel production systems…

Webinar: Managing pastoral systems to maintain or increase soil C & reduce N2O emissions

May 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm NZST

Join the NZAGRC for their upcoming webinar titled "Managing pastoral systems to maintain or increase soil carbon and reduce nitrous oxide emissions". Soil organic carbon is originally derived from carbon dioxide inputs through photosynthesis while plant respiration continuously returns captured carbon to the atmosphere. Small changes in the balance of photosynthesis and respiration lead to either gains or losses of soil carbon. Globally, about 20% of the extra carbon dioxide accumulated in the atmosphere has come from the management of…

Workshop: Reducing Enteric CH4 Emissions from Sub-Saharan Africa 

June 5 @ 1:00 pm - 4:45 pm EDT

African countries contribute to about 10% of enteric CH4 emissions from dairy cattle worldwide despite producing only 3.9% of the world’s milk. This is because livestock production in most Sub-Saharan African countries, by virtue of being dependent on low quality crop residues, leads to very high levels of enteric methane per unit of product, as compared to livestock systems in developed regions. Methane also represents an important loss of energy that could be otherwise channeled into growth or milk production…

GRA MMN Meeting

June 5 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

The GRA Manure Management Network (MMN) is a global forum for scientists focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from livestock production and increasing the nutrient use efficiency of manures. Manure management is the handling, storage and disposal of urine and feces from livestock, other than the manure deposited directly onto pastures by grazing animals. MMN areas of research interest include: Improving our understanding of drivers of greenhouse gas emissions from manuresDeveloping a directory of mitigation strategies that can be applied…
