Introduction to sustainable agriculture (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Hendrike Clouting

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 08:15 - 09:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 12.111

Inhalt: Under a changing global climate and ongoing environmental problems caused by agricultural practice, conventional agriculture in Europe comes under increasing pressure to integrate and transform. Farmers are progressively made responsible for a holistic protection of the environment through sustainable resource and land use. Crop cultivation and livestock production contribute to global warming through large scale greenhouse gas emissions. A consequent reduction of pesticide and fertilizer use is crucial for nature conservation. In 2019-2020 European farmers have protested against strict land use regulations (e.g. limit nitrogen emissions by halving the country's livestock), low milk prices, and also growing criticism of agricultural practices. They are concerned about a decline of their current livelihoods and status in society. At the same time many agricultural systems are vulnerable to climate change and its effects such as droughts and floods. Climate adaptation is inevitable to maintain food security in the long-term. Additionally agriculture in many countries worldwide is under intensifying threat of land and resource use competition, conflicts and consumption by expansion of other sectors, e.g. energy, urban and transport development. Topics addressed during this course include: • Environmental sustainability in agricultural policies and legislation • Spatial implications of agricultural policies and programmes • Environmental policies and legislation • Spatial dimensions of food marketing and consumption • Different forms of agricultural production systems and their main land use functions • The importance of poverty reduction, healthy rural livelihoods and social well-being • Effects of climate change on agriculture and adaptation strategies • Land use change in agriculture for mitigation of climate change effects • Integrative policy approaches, methods and processes for sustainable agriculture at different decision making scales (e.g. strategic environmental assessment (SEA); agri-environmental schemes; nature protection by agreement; multifunctionality of agricultural land use in spatial planning etc.)
