Agriculture & Greenhouse Gas: the Goal to Reduce Emissions

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions directly affect global warming and bring about climate change. It is no surprise that one of the most serious issues facing the world today is the rising levels of these gases in the atmosphere. While the energy sector is the leading source of GHG emissions, farming comes in second. We look at the measures being taken to reduce emissions and confront climate change, while continuing to develop a vibrant agriculture sector.
