About

The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) was launched in December 2009 and now has 49 member countries from all regions of the world. 

The GRA is focused on research, development and extension of technologies and practices that will help deliver ways to grow more food (and more climate-resilient food systems) without growing greenhouse gas emissions.

The GRA is involved in the Coalition's Agriculture initiaitve. The CCAC also participates in the GRA Council meeting annually, in order to share information and build on progress in shared areas of interest, including livestock and paddy rice methane emissions.

Find out more about the organisation on its website.
