direct human activities vs. climate variability of GHG fluxes
→ Model projections of climate change impacts on grassland and arable ecosystems without adaptation and without changes in livestock systems for AR4 scenarios
← Model projections of climate change impacts on grassland, feed crop and livestock systems (with their dynamics), integrating, or not, mitigation and adaptation options and based on the new AR5 baseline and stabilization scenarios
|IMECC, ICOS, FP7 (Infrastructure)||Infrastructure for a carbon observing system
→ Long-term data sets of CO2, water vapour and other GHG gas fluxes exchanged at a range of European arable and grassland sites.
← Views on how to design an operational network for monitoring soil carbon sequestration in grasslands and in croplands
|LEARN||→ Improve the quantification of non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions from animal agriculture at all scales; and facilitate the development of cost effective and practical greenhouse gas mitigation solutions.|
|FAO Life cycle assessment of global animal food chains||→
LCA methodological framework for the livestock sector. Estimates
of GHG from livestocks systems, part of agriculture under carbon
← Improved data on farming systems and emissions
|Legume Futures, FP7||Legume-supported cropping systems for Europe
→ Provides Legume Futures information on the future need for protein feed for livestock production.
← Delivers novel legume-based cropping systems for evaluating cropping systems for livestock farming that provides benefits for both adaptation and mitigation to climate change.
|GGELS Evaluation of the livestock sector's contribution to the EU greenhouse gas emissions||Precise quantification of the greenhouse gases emission (GHG)
from livestock production in Europe by considering GHG emission
all along the production chains.
→ Data on GHG emissions at sub-national region level
|REDNEX, FP7||Management approaches to reduce nitrogen excretion by
→ Mitigation options to reduce N losses in livestock systems
← Integrated mitigation and adaptation options for livestock, including reduction in N loss.
|SMEthane||SMEthane aims to provide a technological platform for SME’s to develop and progress further knowledge on the successful use of nutritional additives to reduce methane (CH4) emissions from ruminants.|
|ECO-FCE||A whole-systems approach to optimising feed use efficiency (FCE) and reducing the ecological footprint of monogastrics.
→ Using state-of-the-art ‘omics’ technologies integrated with novel systems biology research, this project will gain a greater understanding of factors underpinning variation in FCE between monogastric animals.
← It will also identify management routes through which FCE can be improved, and nutrient and greenhouse gas emissions reduced.
