Governments spend over $US 700 billion dollars per year on agricultural support measures such as subsidies, border price distortions and investments in raising productivity. Agriculture and land use change contribute close to a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions policy makers have little information on the implications of agricultural support for emissions.
This seminar examines the links between agricultural support and emissions from agriculture to help guide policy reforms that lower emissions, reduce poverty and improve nutrition.
