Reducing emissions in agriculture for more sustainable farming

Agriculture and Rural Development
Date: Wednesday, 16 May 2018 12:00 - 14:00

Venue: pin International Press Centre- European Union  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

Agriculture is one of the sectors most affected by climate change. However, it also contributes to the release of gases like ammonia and greenhouse gases (GHGs), affecting the quality of air and biodiversity.

These gases are mostly generated from livestock and from organic and mineral nitrogen fertilisers. The EU has put legislation in place to control air pollution, such as the National Emissions Ceilings (NEC) directive setting reduction targets for all countries. 

Mitigation and adaptation are therefore key in finding long-lasting solutions to reduce emissions in the agricultural sector. Choosing the right solutions and applying them in a smart way is also essential in making the European farming sector more sustainable. 

EURACTIV invites you to this workshop to discuss practical ways to reduce emissions in the agricultural sector to mitigate climate change. Questions will include:
- Are the current measures at the EU level enough? Should NEC be revised? 
- How can precision farming help reduce emissions?
- What concrete measures can be implemented by farmers? What kind of support do farmers need to put into effect mitigation and adaptation measures? 
- What role for Member States in reducing emissions?
