Sustainable intensification – pathway to low carbon farming?

Scotland’s Rural College is organising an international conference in September 2013 to debate key issues surrounding sustainable intensification.

This event will bring together natural scientists, social scientists, farm advisers and policy makers to discuss and debate the vital issues and explore how we can feed the rapidly expanding world whilst saving the environment.

Key scientific themes will include development of new metrics for defining sustainable intensification, linking the development of climate change mitigation and adaptation, and how to support growth in developing countries without increasing their emissions.
