This groundbreaking initiative aims to accelerate action against climate change throughout the dairy sector. Research is underway to identify where positive climate change action is possible across all dairy production systems and regions throughout the world. The study is being conducted by the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA), the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, Scotland’s Rural College and the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre. Initial findings indicate that wider use of existing GHG mitigation technologies will make an important impact in reducing dairy’s emissions in the short term, while the development of new innovations takes place.
The DSF will provide the reporting channel for the initiative, which already has the support of more than 40% of global dairy production, making it the largest climate effort of its kind in agriculture.
