The Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) land use and climate change group have responded to a recent report on land use and climate change in Wales. The report was:
"an assessment of the science relating to emissions from the agriculture, land use and food sectors in Wales and outlines a way forward for these sectors to achieve significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2040. ... Existing evidence suggests that agricultural operations and land use changes contribute around 11% to Wales' total GHG [GreenHouse Gas] emissions - or a ~net 5,200 kt CO2e. Of this, about 45% is in the form of CH4 from ruminant animals" (pxxix)
