The Synthesis Report “Agriculture in Greenland – possibilities and needs for future development and research for Greenland” by Agricultural Initiative (GRAIN) in cooperation with Greenland Perspective has been published
Agriculture in Greenland faces an uncertain future impacted significantly by a changing climate. It will influence the way farming in Greenland is carried out and the scope of agricultural development. Higher temperatures allow for better crop yields and feed production capability for livestock, as well as new crop, but are mixed with a higher degree of unpredictable weather and droughts, as well as the potential introduction of invasive species and pests. Agricultural management on a local and national level thus is under pressure to create a framework within which the sector can adjust effectively and continue to contribute to the political ambitions of higher levels of local food production in Greenland.
