Opportunities to Reduce Methane Emissions from Global Agriculture

Publication Year
Global climate strategies have recently increased the focus on reducing methane, including pledges by many countries to reduce methane emissions by 2030. Agriculture generates 40-46% of methane emissions, but policymakers have indicated that they have less understanding about how to reduce these emissions. This new discussion paper estimates potential for agricultural  methane reductions by 54% from likely 2050 levels and 36% from present levels, describes how and recommends some strategies for moving forward.
