CLIMATE CHANGE AND TECHNOLOGIES IN AGRICULTURE

Agriculture is responsible for ¼ of the greenhouse gases (GHGs) that arise through human activities. In order to feed an ever-increasing population on Earth, agriculture crop efficiencies will continue to grow - 14% per decade according to Inra (national agro-research establishment). Technologies therefore have a major role to play to limit the impact on the climate.

During a recent NATF session on “the role of technologies to moderate climate change”, Marion Guillou, NATF Fellow and Chair of the Board of Agreenium, interviewed Jean-François Soussana, senior research scientist at Inra (national agro-research establishment); they reviewed together the measures that need to be implemented if we want to decrease GHG emissions in the agricultural sector.
