Expressions of Interest for the New Zealand Fund for Global Partnerships in Livestock Emissions Research (the Fund) are now being called. The Fund is aimed at accelerating global research into mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from pastoral livestock farming.

The Fund is open to international scientists, and it is hoped that multi-stakeholder/country consortia bids will be put forward.

The Fund will seek proposals in response to a set of high-level research challenges in the areas of:
  • Manipulating rumen function
  • Reducing nitrous oxide emissions from soils in predominantly grazing livestock systems
  • Manipulating the rates of soil carbon change in predominantly grazing livestock systems
  • Improved tools for farmer decision making in predominantly grazing livestock systems
Please find attached a summary of the fund and the application process. Further details can be obtained from www.maf.govt.nz/nzlivestockemissionsfund

All questions should be emailed to by 1 November 2011.
