Global Research Alliance Website Launched

The website for the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases is now up and running. Click on http://globalresearchalliance.org to access information on the Alliance, including a summary of proceedings from the first senior officials' meeting, held in New Zealand in April 2010.  

The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases was launched on 16 December 2009 in the margins of the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. The concept originated in New Zealand, but its membership now spans the globe.

The Alliance is focused on research, development and extension of technologies and practices that will help deliver ways to grow more food (and more climate-resilient food systems) without growing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Alliance brings countries, organisations and individuals together in a bottom-up, voluntary network to increase international cooperation, collaboration and investment in agricultural greenhouse gas research. The Alliance will help improve the understanding and measurement of agricultural emissions. It will also find better ways to share research results, technologies and best practices, and get these out to farmers on the ground.
