Farmers Taking Action on Climate Change
Agriculture is responsible for around 13 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, second only to the energy sector. But agriculture also plays a vital role in feeding and nourishing the world, and the world’s farmers are already being impacted by climate change as well.
What does this mean for farmers? Why should it matter to them? And how are they changing how they farm to minimise their climate impact and adapt to changing conditions?
