Expert Panel 15

The power of many: enhancing climate change mitigation through agricultural research networks (in times of pandemics)

Thuenen Institute / Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) / University Potsdam 

Time: Thursday, 21. January 2021, 17:00 – 18:00 (CET)
Languages: English, German

Panel guests will be announced soon

 

The immediate threat of the pandemic to food security is clear; however, as countries struggle to address this unprecedented challenge there is a danger that climate change activities will be deprioritised, which will compound global food insecurity. Recognising that many countries have limited resources, it is time to understand what work has to been done and what aims could be most effectively and efficiency pursued to ensure the dual challenges of the pandemic and climate change are addressed.

The expert panel will:

– outline collaborative actions taken over the past 10 years on reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, including through the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases;

– share regional/country perspectives on the value of research networks to address global challenges and meet regional/country outcomes;

– discuss key findings and opportunities to accelerate mitigation science and food security in the context of a complex and challenging global environment;

– discuss how evidence-based research results can be transferred into policy action and how this is done in the different research networks
