ORC organised and ran the third Greenhouse Gas Platform Knowledge Exchange workshop in Birmingham in June. The event provided an update on progress within each of the Platform projects and provided an opportunity to question the delivery teams. In addition the day gathered participant feedback on a range of methods for reporting the uncertainty associated with scientific data relating to GHGs from agriculture and provided an update on progress within each of the UK’s GHG Action Plans for Agriculture.
