The fourth annual meeting of the Integrative Research Group (IRG) of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) was held at Wageningen University & Research, Wageningen, the Netherlands on 2-4 March 2020. Delegates attended from 13 GRA member countries, nine partner organisations and Madagascar attended as an observer. 

Discussions focused on achievements of the IRG, the future of a Circular Food Systems Network led by the Netherlands within the IRG, exploring the co-benefits of GHG mitigation and adaptation, and how the IRG can achieve its aims. IRG committed establishing a formal Circular Food Systems Network, working closer between GRA members and with GRA partners to model co-benefits and align work programmes.

The meeting was attended by Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Madagascar, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and United States of America. The purpose of the IRG is to foster collaboration in the science community across the GRA Research Groups and between GRA member countries, international partnerships, research organisations and research institutions to ultimately develop international knowledge and capabilities for estimation, monitoring, and projecting greenhouse gas emissions within and across agricultural systems.

The meeting report and presentations are available here.

Join this online event organised by the Global Food summit to discover how bioeconomy can change the way we produce food in 2030. Have a look into innovative scenarios at the Berlin Science Week, November 4, 2020.

“Innovations are the hard currency of the knowledge society, as Wolf Lotter put it so succinctly. They bring radical changes which we as a society must discuss at this point openly. Our future is shaped today so we should participate in the decision making. At Berlin Science Week, we are therefore presenting science based radical future scenarios of how food will tomorrow be produced in an urban society. More sustainable, more ecological, more individual.“, Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein, Head & Founder, Global Food Summit, describes the event.
