Tell us how you’re reducing methane emissions


Using Manure as a Resource
Manure and other organic materials can be converted into biogas through anaerobic digestion. Learn More »

The primary sources of methane emissions from agriculture are livestock enteric fermentation, livestock waste management, rice cultivation, and agricultural waste burning. Of these, livestock waste management offers the most viable, near-term opportunities for methane recovery and utilization.

The Agriculture Technical Group is dedicated to reducing the impacts of climate change by providing international leadership to mitigate global methane emissions through the abatement, recovery, and use of methane from agricultural sources. The technical group promotes collaboration between delegates from Partner Countries and Project Network members to build capacity, develop strategies and markets, and remove barriers to methane mitigation project development in order to increase environmental quality, improve rural livelihoods, strengthen the economy, and expand opportunities for renewable energy production and use.
