Agricultural systems are large contributors to greenhouse gas production and environmental pollution. An integrated approach is required for mitigation and the creation of climate-smart and environment-friendly production systems.
The Climate-Resilient Agri-Environmental Systems (CRAES) group was formed to address this challenge by harnessing UCD’s multidisciplinary expertise and engaging with national and international collaborators and stakeholders.
CRAES aims to foster agri-environmental research, modelling and technology development and to provide strategic education and training.
