International Meet on Global Methane Partner Food and Agriculture Pathway Action on methane to keep a 1.5°C future within reach
Agriculture is the largest human-derived source of methane emissions (40%). Short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) have intense atmospheric warming effects and constitute a major proportion of agriculture’s climate impacts. The experts will discuss the available solutions for agricultural SLCP emissions and existing technologies and how these solutions increase agricultural productivity and sustain and protect livelihoods of small and marginal farmers to enhance food security.
