Norway on climate challenges and agriculture

In July the Norwegian Government presented a White Paper on climate challenges and agriculture to the Storting. The proposal enlarges on and supplements the White Paper on Norway’s ambitious climate policy in relation to agriculture.

“Sustainable and climate-friendly production of sufficient food and energy for the world’s population is a major challenge,” says the report. All sectors, agriculture included, are expected to contribute to emission mitigation measures and other measures to ensure positive contribution to reduction of the world’s emissions of greenhouse gases.

In the new White Paper the Norwegian Government considers emissions and uptake of greenhouse gases in the agricultural sector in Norway, and the adaptation and instruments necessary for robust, climate-adapted agriculture in the future.

A summary is now available in English:
