Agriculture in times of climate change

As a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Germany has committed itself to documenting and reducing the emission of greenhouse gases; It is more important than ever to clarify whether it will be possible to reach the 2 ° C target of the Paris Agreement. Soil plays a central role in the regulation of global greenhouse gas emissions; they can be both source and sink. The extent to which agroforestry systems (including KUP) represent a contribution to the CO2 sink should be one aspect of the workshop. Furthermore, the focus is on how the farmer can ensure sustainable land management under today's climatic conditions.

On the one hand, the workshop offers an insight into the current situation in the area of ​​GHG reduction in agriculture and at the same time indicates possible potentials, such as: land use by agroforestry.

The following sub-aspects should also be considered here: closure of material cycles, nutrient pollution of waters and the goal of a circular bio-economy. FLYER
