Recording and Reducing Greenhouse-Gas Emissions

This project investigates the impact of grassland-use measures for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions under real-life conditions in Switzerland. Suitable methods are developed for estimating the potential and the actual impact of the implementation of the reduction measures at national level, so that greenhouse-gas emissions can be more easily recorded in the inventory, as well as forecasted. At the same time, direct and indirect greenhouse-gas effects are quantified, and trade-offs with other environmental impacts are investigated.

Annual reporting on the agricultural greenhouse-gas inventory provides sound information for policy-makers and society.
