Learning Event No 12, Session 2, ARDD 2011: How Denmark is mitigating green house gases and increasing production in the agriculture sector?

  1. 1. How Denmark is mitigating greenhouse gases and increasing production in the agriculture sector? Jos Cozijnsen
  2. 2. Evidence of impact1. Various Danish policies: what you grow, ban fertilizer, ban burning grass on land into biogas: National MCO2: 1990: 3,5 Mt  2009 1.6, -> 2020 0 Mt with growing production and yield2. Individual CFE Project of 11 ha combines food, fodder, trees: crops, and energy important: Not only food, need to add environment services: Need add non market values, increase up/to 30%3. Starting Point North: Oversupply, energy + Env. Problems. For Small holder: Land rights and need for intensification, but need knowledge, compliance, consistent measuring
  3. 3. Going to scale1. Resource efficiency= less GHG, more production: Don’t take out biomass: can deliver food + energy and ensure long term CO2 sequestration2. Need to include environment service, cause negative impact is lower with holistic look at Earth and agriculture . Is Agro forestry + organic farming, seen as romantic in North but practice for small holders, but how to create real revenues?3. Value by Linking South and North: Document what you do on farm + measure CO2. a) Label for organic and PES gives premium price; b) carbon=biodiversity and value on CO2 Market
