The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases brings countries together to find ways to grow more food without growing greenhouse gas emissions. It was launched in December 2009.

The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases was launched in December 2009 and now has more than 30 member countries from all regions of the world.  For more information on the membership, please see the Community pages.

The Alliance is focused on research, development and extension of technologies and practices that will help deliver ways to grow more food (and more climate-resilient food systems) without growing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Alliance is founded on the voluntary, collaborative efforts of countries. Its membership and governance arrangements are underpinned by a Charter [PDF], signed by all participating countries.

This Charter establishes the Alliance Council, which is the representative body of all member countries. The current Chair of the Council is Canada and Uruguay is Vice-Chair.

Members of the Alliance aim to deepen and broaden mitigation research efforts across the agricultural sub-sectors of paddy rice, cropping and livestock, and the cross-cutting themes of soil carbon and nitrogen cycling and inventories and measurement issues. Groups have been set up to address these areas of work. These Groups have developed work plans that bring countries and other partners together in research collaborations, as well as to share knowledge and best practices, build capacity and capability amongst scientists and other practitioners, and move towards breakthrough solutions in addressing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. For more information, please see the Research pages.

A Secretariat, currently hosted by New Zealand, supports the work of the Council and the Research and Cross-Cutting Groups.
