Methane Webinar Series: Reducing Methane Emissions from Agricultural Rice Cultivation and Livestock in California and China

December 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Registration is free but required.

Methane is responsible for approximately 20 percent of current global warming, and methane emissions continue to increase worldwide. For both California and China, one potential shared avenue for reducing methane is through more sustainable agricultural practices, as agriculture is a major source of methane emissions in these two regions. What opportunities exist for reducing methane emissions from the agricultural sector, particularly rice cultivation and livestock? Join us to hear from issue experts from California and China, offering their insights.

Moderated by Rixin Zhu, Methane Policy Fellow, California-China Climate Institute, UC Berkeley
