The latest workshop report for the Animal Health & Greenhouse Gas Emissions Intensity Network (AHN) is now available. This year’s workshop, held on Tuesday 15 March 2016, brought together researchers and research funders to exchange information on scientific research and on other initiatives with which the Network is developing links. The workshop was attended by 21 participants representing 9 countries.
The Animal Health and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Intensity Network is a United Kingdom-led initiative of the Livestock Research Group (LRG) of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (www.globalresearchalliance.org), and aims to bring together researchers in relevant disciplines (veterinary science, epidemiology, animal science, modelling, GHG research and food security) from across the world to investigate links and synergies between animal diseases and GHG emissions intensities, and possible GHG mitigation through disease control.
The workshop report for the regional GRA Engagement workshop held 18-19 November 2015 in Izmir, Turkey is now available to download. Participants gave enthusiastic reviews of the workshop, which familiarized non-member countries with the work and achievements of the GRA, created discussion opportunities on the key issues facing eastern Mediterranean and Central Asian countries with respect to agriculture and climate change, and explored further cooperation and GRA membership opportunities. The Turkish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock, the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Turkey, and the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases were involved.
