KlimAgrar - Research support for climate-friendly action in agriculture
08/2017 - 08/2022
KlimAgrar is a funding project of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) based on a resolution of the German Bundestag within the framework of the program to promote innovation. Under the title "Climate protection in agriculture and adaptation of agricultural production to the consequences of global warming", the BMEL promotes research projects in the fields of soil, crop production and animal husbandry that contribute to achieving the objectives of the Paris Convention adopted at the 21st UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) and the National Climate Change Plan 2050. The Working Group on Agricultural Sciences networks these research projects on an inter- and transdisciplinary basis and evaluates them in a meta-analysis. The results lead to a knowledge platform with recommendations for action for science, politics and industry (cf. www. unter-2-grad.de).
