About the conference
“Land plays an important role in the climate system… Agriculture, forestry and other types of land use account for 23% of human greenhouse gas emissions… At the same time natural land processes absorb carbon dioxide equivalent to almost a third of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and industry” (IPCC Working Group III)
It is in this global context that land, land use change and forestry is currently being considered at a national level in Ireland.
This conference will highlight the data, evidence and emerging research in the land use area in Ireland from a scientific, policy and practical perspective. Speakers will bring diverse perspectives and insights on land use and climate policies including food systems and agriculture, farming, the co-dependencies and benefits across climate, water quality, biodiversity, and society.
