EPNF have recently completed a draft summary of their first report:
'Nitrogen on the table: The influence of food choices on nitrogen emissions and the European environment'
The report will be launched later this year as a special report of the European Nitrogen Assessment - the summary is available for download here. An outline of the report will be presented at the TFRN-7 meeting in St Petersburg. If you have any queries or comments regarding the draft summary please send them to email@example.com by 12th March.
The Panel will investigate the effects of a lower human intake of plant and animal originated protein on N emissions and the societal cost for mitigation NH3 and greenhouse gas emissions. It also plans to investigate additional side‐benefits of dietary changes, compared with technical measures, including effects on land use, greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity. To do this, the panel requires members from a variety of disciplines, including expertise on nitrogen cycling and emissions, livestock and arable production systems, LCA-methodology, aquaculture and emissions.
