Many of you may have seen the work from Oxford Martin University in 2019 challenging how methane, though a short-lived climate gas, is treated like Carbon as a long-lived climate gas under IPCC reporting protocols.
The DSF is facilitating a work stream to look more deeply at the science behind the Oxford Martin work to enable the sector to better understand current levels of scientific knowledge and agree appropriate steps based on the available evidence.
This is a complex area so it is important that the science is reviewed and translated to better inform the cattle (yes... beef also) sector. To see more detail of the Oxford Martin work click here.
The DSF are looking for a wide range of stakeholders to be part of this work stream and funding for the continuation of the work. If your organization would like to be integral in delivering this important piece of work for the global cattle sector, more detail can be found here.
