The agricultural sector needs to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) as part of the worldwide efforts to mitigate climate changes
Consequently, in Norway, the Government has recently required the agricultural sector to reduce its emissions with 5 million tons of CO2eq over the next decade (2021-2030). So far, in general many possible mitigation measures have been suggested, while little is actually carried through. In order to reduce GHG emissions without serious reductions in food production, farming activities and use of technologies have to be altered in fruitful and implementable ways. By analyzing structures and processes of the practical and real world, CLIMPLEMENT will offer new and important knowledge on how to obtain successful implementation and diffusion of GHG reducing farm management models in Norwegian agriculture. The main purpose of the project is to extend and spread the knowledge about how farmers successfully adopt GHG reducing management models and system factors that affect such changes. The project will also develop analytical tools based on Norwegian conditions to measure GHG reducing potentials in various management settings and consequences for food production and farm incomes.
