Food Production Spikes Greenhouse Gas - CGIAR

CGIAR says that food production accounts for up to 29 percent of man-made greenhouse gases

Agriculture research organisation, CGIAR, says that food production accounts for up to 29 percent of man-made greenhouse gases, twice the amount the United Nations has estimated comes from farming.

CGIAR research programme on climate change, agriculture and food security, Bruce Campbell, points out that, "There are good economic reasons to improve efficiency in agriculture, not just to cut greenhouse gas emissions."

In its report, ‘Climate Change and Food Systems’, the organisation states that by looking at emissions across the food system, much more work is needed to cut climate change emissions from food.
