Managing GHG emissions for Carbon Pricing Framework – Agriculture sector

There are numerous study reports which suggest that agriculture and dietary consumption changes have potential to impact the GHG emissions. With the population explosion it is anticipated that to feed a global population of 9.1 billion with current dietary patterns food production likely to increase by 70% between 2005 to 2050.      There are many methods which can help reduce GHG emissions without impacting the agriculture productivity. The methods used to manage the GHG emissions from agriculture will have major impact on the global climate, those can be at the supply side or at demand side.

Circularity of Supply Chains in digital era- An Example of Agriculture sector

During the Circularity forum conducted by National Geographic channel on Recycling plastic one of the points which has come to the fore front is the ability to trace the plastic waste within the supply chain. The problem of identifying an item within the supply chain is not new, like many previous studies suggested using incentives to collect back the materials, using central collection centers or even using reusable containers or reverse vending systems etc. The concept of reverse logistics is very complex and not cost competitive and its implementation using reverse vending or reusable systems is still a topic of discussion. In this blog I am trying to put my thoughts on prevalent digital techniques which can be used for managing circularity within  agriculture sector.

Application of Digital Technologies for adoption of Circular Economy

I remember my research days some 20 years back working on presentation on Cleaner Production Technologies and Circular Economy. This CE has taken prominence in recent years due to increased pressure on Natural resources and changing consumer behavior. As we all know increased resource consumption results in increased waste generation which returns to environment, if not properly managed. That is the linear economic model (take, make, use, dispose) is an unsustainable practice. Recent heightened interest in carbon emission management, smart cities, waste management, water usage etc, are also acting as enablers for adoption of CE models. Given the recent explosion of technologies like Big Data & IoT, mobility changes, there seems tremendous opportunity to enable rapid adoption of CE in manufacturing and other sectors.
