A symposium on agriculture in the context of climate change entitled 'Addressing the climate challenge - what can agriculture do? Ideas from Europe and beyond' will take place in Brussels, Belgium, on 28 October.

In Europe and in the world, different initiatives aim to reduce the contribution of the agricultural sector to greenhouse gas emissions and use the potential of land in carbon storage. The objective of this symposium is to provide stakeholders, policy makers and the research community with a clearer view of what is being done about the matter, and what options can be envisaged.

The symposium is an essential part of the EU-funded project PICCMAT ('Policy incentives for climate change mitigation agricultural techniques') and will mark its completion after two years of research. On the occasion, the project consortium will introduce the final results of the research, in particular on the mitigation potential of agriculture in Europe, and policy recommendations for the coming years.For further information, please visit:
