Climate change

Why climate change?

The question of the environmental impact of agriculture, including on climate change through carbon footprint analysis, is at the heart of the current challenges of agriculture. Innovative approaches to integrating the full range of impacts of the life cycle of a production process are also rapidly emerging. These issues and approaches are highly relevant to irrigated agriculture, the main focus of our activity.

What do we do?

Our action aims to initiate collective reflection on the methods (advantages, limits and operationality) to be implemented to evaluate the impacts of irrigated agriculture on the climate, and the impacts of climate change on irrigated agriculture and more generally, on the environment. For this purpose, we propose the organisation of seminars focused on two main themes:

  • the carbon footprint approach: tools and methods to make the approach more operational
  • the current situation of other approaches such as the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
