EDGAR FOOD – the first global food emission inventory

JRC developed a new global food emission database (EDGAR-FOOD) estimating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the years 1990-2015. It is the first emission database of GHGs covering all countries and sectors of the food system, from production to disposal. EDGAR-FOOD provides an unprecedented picture of how an evolving food system has responded to the evolution of world population in the last 25 years.
