Rice, Water and Climate Change

Rice, Water and Climate Change

This is a past event

Rice is the world’s most important crop but also one of the most environmentally damaging because it uses a lot of water and contributes to climate change more than other cereals. 

Join Dr Adam Price for this presentation, on Thursday 24 September 2020 from 10am-11am, which will explain why rice traditionally needs water and why that leads directly to its high climate impact. During the talk Dr Price will also describe research aiming to reduce both water use and greenhouse gas emissions from rice.

This presentation will form part of two discussions that are due to take place concurrently with Climate Week NYC 2020 and we hope that the timing of this event will enable our alumni in different timezones to be able to participate.

Online registrations for this event are now closed. If you would like to register for this event please email alumni@abdn.ac.uk.

Please note that this session will be recorded and shared online.
