New breakthroughs in understanding and harnessing the carbon sink potential in agricultural products, plant biology and in the protection and cultivation of ocean resources could be the “next frontier” opportunity for addressing climate change. This session will compare and contrast the potential impact of emerging developments in these areas. What innovative approaches could rebalance the carbon footprint of the Agriculture industry and what has to happen at the farm level to make this happen? What are the latest scientific developments to harness the carbon absorbing qualities of plants ? What is the potential for this science to impact climate change? What are the key areas of research which offer carbon-reducing potential from oceans? What are the potential commercial openings which could develop from breakthroughs in these areas?
