Knowledge for better food systems

Past projects

The FCRN carries out integrative research into food systems and sustainability. By identifying emerging or controversial issues of concern and differing perspectives among stakeholders, we help to shape the wider agenda on food systems sustainability, within communities of research, policy and practice.

Ruminating on cattle, grazing systems, methane, nitrous oxide, the soil carbon sequestration question – and what it all means for greenhouse gas emissions.

This project aims to dissect claims made by different stakeholders in the debate on grazing systems and their greenhouse gas emissions and evaluate them against the best available science, providing an authoritative and unbiased answer to the question: Is grass-fed beef good or bad for the climate?
