The Global Research Alliance on agricultural greenhouse gases has four flagship research programmes:
The Flagships are designed as a way of defining research priorities and attracting resourcing for large, collaborative research projects.
Two additional future flagships on the circular food system, and nitrous oxide have been identified and a taskforce to explore each has been established.
Details on the Enteric Fermentation Flagship and its four initial projects are available at http://www.nzagrc.org.nz/gra,listing,445,towards-low-emissions-livestock-the-gras-enteric-fermentation-flagship.html
There are high-level project concepts for the Inventory Flagship including:
The Soil Carbon Sequestration Flagship will focus mostly on activities within the existing ‘Coordination of International Research Cooperation on Soil Carbon Sequestration in Agriculture (CIRCASA) initiative, funded by the FACCE-JPI.
CIRCASA aims to strengthen the international research community on soil carbon sequestration in relation to climate change and food security; improve our understanding of agricultural soil carbon sequestration and its potential for mitigation, adaptation and increasing food production; co-design a strategic research agenda with stakeholders on soil carbon sequestration; and create an ‘International Research Consortium’ (funding model) in this area.
The Flagship will also assess options for soil carbon sequestration in grazing systems and set up a ‘soil microbiome for soil carbon’ network.
