Climate change is one of the great environmental challenges we face today. Agriculture affects and is affected by the climate. Agriculture can contribute to climate change as a source of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, methane and nitrous oxide), but also serve as a sink for atmospheric carbon through carbon sequestration. Since agricultural production depends on the climate, changes to historical trends and norms can impact food production. CSANR has managed active research and education programming related to the intersection of agriculture and climate for more than a decade, focusing on greenhouse gas mitigation, carbon sequestration, climate change impact assessment and adaptation.
