special issue to be edited by AERU.
Agriculture both contributes to climate
change and is affected
by climate change. In particular, agricultural practices
and processes can result in significant amounts of
methane and nitrous oxide, two powerful greenhouse
gases, being released. According to the OECD, agriculture
contributes a significant share of the greenhouse gas (GHG)
emissions that are causing climate change: approximately
17% directly through agricultural activities and an additional
7% to 14% through land use changes. Agriculture is
also likely to be severely affected by climate change. Flooding and
droughts will be more common and productivity is
expected to decrease in certain parts of the world. However,
there is significant potential for efficiency savings and
technical solutions exist but these must be done in a sustainable
manner to ensure that the solution does not cause
other socio-economic or environmental problems. They
must also be tailored to individual regions and farming systems.
This Special Issue, which is to be edited by Prof. Kathy Lewis
Doug Warner, aims to contribute to the state of the art
regarding climate friendly options for sustainable agriculture.
Of interest are original manuscripts focusing on the
impacts of climate change on agricultural production and
the broad sustainability of adaptation techniques.
Further details for authors and others with
an interest in the subject, can be obtained from the Climate website.
