The Ministry of Agriculture invites you to participate in an online seminar on the possibilities of managing nutrient-rich organic soil to mitigate climate change on April 10, 2024 at 10 a.m. on the “MS Teams” platform.

The aim of the seminar is to present the contribution of the LIFE OrgBalt project* to the implementation of measures to reduce climate change by promoting the sustainable use of agricultural and forest land. It is also planned to explain the importance of organic soil in the European Union and inform about the prepared legislative initiatives that may affect it. On the other hand, an expert from Germany will provide a practical insight into the implementation of organic soil management measures in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern of the Federal Republic of Germany, whose organic soil conditions for drained agriculture are comparable to Latvia.

With the seminar, we want to promote the discussion about the potential of climate change mitigation measures in Latvia. Therefore, we invite representatives from state administrative institutions, municipalities, regions, farmers’ and foresters’ non-governmental organizations, nature protection and scientific organizations, etc. to participate. We invite others to share information about the seminar.

Pre-registration is mandatory, so please REGISTER FOR THE ONLINE WORKSHOP ON THE APPLICATION FORM.

Registered participants will be sent a MS Teams login link the day before the workshop (April 9).

AGENDA OF THE WORKSHOP

If you need additional information, please contact the senior expert of the Department of International Affairs of the Ministry of Agriculture, Kristini Purina, by writing an e-mail to [email protected] or by calling 26547332.

* The Ministry of Agriculture, together with seven other cooperation partners, is implementing the international project “Demonstration of climate change reduction opportunities in fertile organic soils in the Baltic States and Finland” – LIFE OrgBalt (LIFE18 CCM/LV/001158). The most significant result of the project will be a scientific basis for climate change mitigation methods, which can be used to reduce GHG emissions by managing fertile organic soil in agricultural and forest land. In addition, national GHG emission factors for fertile organic soil will be developed, a unified GHG accounting system and GHG emissions database will be created for the countries of the Baltic region, as well as guidelines will be developed for thoughtful and climate change mitigation for organic weed management.
