Preliminary Program

On behalf of the Organising Committee of the 7th International Greenhouse Gas and Animal Agriculture Conference (GGAA2019), we would like to invite you to join us at our conference to be held in Iguassu Falls, Brazil, from 4th to 10th August 2019.

In 2019 the GGAA will focus on the theme “Science supporting Practices”. Following on from the six previous GGAA conferences, GGAA2019 aims to present the latest research on the measurement, modelling and mitigation of greenhouse gases, while also seeking to discuss the impact of these advances for farmers, managers and policy makers. The conference will feature a number of highly respected and internationally renowned speakers, who will review the state of the art and present significant new developments in the field. 


We prepared four Scientific Sessions:


Session1: Technical advances: from genomics to precision agriculture, that will address aspects related to Measuring and Modelling GHG.

Session 2: Farm level low carbon initiatives, which will address Mitigation and Adaptation strategies to provide more Resilient production systems.

Session 3: Regional low carbon initiatives, which will consider the Landscape, Regional management and National Commitments.

Session 4: International low carbon initiatives, which will present examples from IPCC, NDCs, FAO, World Bank, etc.

 

Delegates will have the opportunity to publish their research in a peer reviewed journal, with all abstracts published in the conference proceedings. While the submitted papers are restricted in word length, those offered by the invited keynote papers are not and must merely meet the normal journal requirements for full papers.

Keeping the tradition of previous events, the GGAA2019 will allow a day of scientific programming for technical visits to places of interest related to GHG themes and climate change. The previous visits were memorable and we hope to impress them too in Iguassu Falls.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the conference by the Conference Secretariat email at support@ggaa2019.org. We look forward to your participation and support in making the GGAA2019 conference a success.


Yours sincerely,
GGAA2019 Organizing Committee
