THE PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF THE SLMACC RESEARCH PROGRAMME
The SLMACC research programme was launched by Government in September 2007. Its aim is to help the agriculture and forestry sectors address the challenges arising from climate change.
The SLMACC research programme aims to fund research into:
. understanding impacts and supporting adaptation to climate change;
. reducing agricultural greenhouse gases;
. encouraging the establishment of forest sinks;
. managing deforestation; and
. capitalising on new business opportunities arising from the world’s response to climate change.
The SLMACC research programme invests in targeted-basic, applied and policy research, across 5 themes:
. the impacts of, and adaptation to climate change;
. mitigation of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions;
. enhancement of forest sinks;
. knowledge transfer/extension; and
. cross-cutting issues, including economic analysis, life-cycle analysis, farm, catchment and systems analysis and social impacts.
