Reducing Methane Emissions from Food and Agriculture

Climate Advisers latest policy brief focuses on reducing methane emissions from food and agriculture. Methane emissions from this sector make up 54 percent of all anthropogenic methane emissions, making mitigation in this sector key to achieving global climate goals.

Our brief identifies feasible, near-term strategies for addressing the largest sources of methane emissions in this sector: livestock, food loss and waste, and rice production. In addition, we share recommendations for U.S. international leadership to spur global action on food and agriculture emissions.
