Agriculture and Cattle Raising in the Context of a Low Carbon Economy


  • Gustavo Barbosa Mozzer

    () (Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA))


In the agricultural sector it is undeniable that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions arise both from the consumption of fossil fuels and the biogenic process, including anaerobic decomposition processes. Agriculture can also contribute to soil degradation and deforestation of natural ecosystems when poorly managed. As such, GHG emissions from this sector are not only associated with the energy-intensive consumption of fossil fuels but are also intrinsically related to the nature of practices in the sector. (?)
