Agriculture’s Undeniable Role in Climate Change

Investments in Environment and Agriculture sectors go hand in hand in order to create balanced and multidimentional impact.

Food Wast

Approximately 1/3ʳᵈ of food produced is lost or wasted. To produce this food that is never eaten by people requires an agricultural area almost the size of the United States. Food wastage is directly connected to GHG emissions.

Harmful Gas

Agriculture accounts for ~45% of methane (CH₄) – from livestock and rice production, and 80% of Nitrous Oxide (N₂O) – from the application of synthetic fertilizers. These gases are more powerful drivers of climate change than CO₂.


The likelihood of simultaneous production shocks affecting more than 10% of production in the top 4 corn-exporting countries, rises to 7% under a 2ᵒC warming scenario and to a staggering 86% under a 4ᵒC warming scenario.


Agriculture, forestry, and land use change contribute ~30% of the GHG emissions driving climate change. Yet only 38% of agriculture emissions are covered by nationally determined commitments under the Paris Agreement.
