Agriculture and Nature

The system of agriculture and nature achieving net climate neutrality
  • The aim of this MMIP is to make a maximum contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture in the Netherlands. This includes reducing emissions from livestock farming and agricultural soils, as well as increasing carbon sequestration in forests and nature.

    The key focus areas include:

    • Reducing methane emissions from animals.
    • Reducing methane and nitrous oxide emissions from barns and manure storage, including upgrading manure.
    • Understanding the factors that contribute to nitrous oxide production in soils.
    • Developing new fertilization products and strategies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
    • Reducing oxidation in peatlands.
    • Increasing carbon sequestration in forests and nature.
