Our research themes

Climate change and risks

Adapting to climate change and managing risks

• Moving towards climate neutrality by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the storage of carbon in soils and biomass • Adapting agricultural practices, forestry practices, and water resource management to deal with climate change • Understanding, anticipating, and limiting climate risks to reduce ecosystem vulnerability while also increasing ecosystem resilience • Forecasting, averting, and adapting to multiple climate risks and their interactions

The carbon market: taking the heat out of the climate crisis

As the climate continues to change, the opportunity has opened up for agriculture, despite its status as a net producer of greenhouse gases, to act as a lever to mitigate the effects of the climate crisis by controlling greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and moving to positive agricultural practices that sequestrate carbon in the soil. INRAE is working to turn this opportunity into a reality, as Suzanne Reynders tells us.
