|Methane and food: (dis)closing the gap
|Agriculture is the leading driver of anthropogenic methane emissions. As a highly potent short-lived climate pollutant, we know we need to urgently reduce methane emissions in order to meet crucial 2030 climate targets. One of the ways to ensure companies can become accountable for methane reduction is to introduce corporate methane reporting. Indeed, this is already becoming commonplace in the energy sector. So why is there a lack of action when it comes to disclosing methane emissions within the agri-food sector? This event will assess the various incentives and obstacles to enable rapid action now.

|Doing Blue Foods Right
|“Blue foods,” a diverse category that includes thousands of species plants and animals harvested wild or cultivated from marine and freshwater systems, are increasingly discussed in climate conversations. Such attention is important—blue food systems make critical contributions to food security, nutrition, and livelihoods and can be a part of a more sustainable food system. However, blue foods vary tremendously in their environmental impacts, contributions to food security, and contributions to livelihoods in ways that depend not only on the species, but also methods of production and locations of production and consumption. In many cases, an assessment of these contributions will involve distributional trade-offs at the inter- or intra-nationally.
