Achieving Our Agricultural Climate Targets Symposium header

The 5th UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science Biennial Symposium entitled "Achieving Our Agricultural Climate Targets: Pathways For Success" takes place on Wednesday 7th of December 2022.

To achieve our climate targets and ensure the long-term sustainability of our sector, agriculture is working towards the development of more climate resilient systems and the reduction of agricultural emissions. Significant transformation is needed and this requires joined up thinking and long-term strategic planning in both research and practice. This Symposium aims to raise awareness, exchange knowledge and provide research- based information on current policy approaches, farm-level initiatives and address the contribution of sustainable diets in food security debates.

Session themes include:

  • Policy Landscape
  • Farm level initiatives: Mitigation Measures

  • Beyond the Farm Gate: Connecting Consumers, Industry and Farm Level Initiatives
