Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a global scale. Climate change affects agriculture in a number of ways, including through changes in average temperatures, rainfall, and climate extremes (e.g., heat waves); changes in pests and diseases; changes in the nutritional quality of some foods, etc.
But also our food choices have a powerful impact on Climate Change, while meat production is a major contributor. It is estimated that livestock production accounts for 70 per cent of all agricultural land and produces a considerable volume of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
These are some of the topics we are going to touch in public discussion on April, 12 in Tartu.
The event is organized by Peipsi CTC and Estonian Green Movement and co-funded by Estonian Development Cooperation Program
