GLRPPR Sector Resource: How Does Agriculture Change Our Climate?
How Does Agriculture Change Our Climate?
In this report, we consider emissions from just part of the global food system: deforestation and agricultural management. The share of emissions from transportation of products in the global food supply chain, packaging, and food waste, for example, are important but not included here. When these activities are also considered, the global food system accounts for roughly 30 percent of global emissions.
