2. Improve global cooperation in research & technology Accelerate/strengthen knowledge and technology developm ent that would not happen without the Alliance

3. Work with farmers and partners to provide knowledge Develop relevant mitigation options and strengthen productivity and resilience of food systems.

The Group is co-chaired by New Zealand (Dr Harry Clark, New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre: email harry.clark@nzagrc.org.nz) and the Netherlands (Dr Martin Scholten, Wageningen UR: email martin.scholten@wur.nl).
