U.S. Universities Aren’t Getting Enough Funding to Tackle Agriculture’s Climate Impact
ARIA analysed almost 22,000 research grants given to Land Grant Universities in the US and found only about 2% were for climate-related research. Corporate grants were even less climate-focused, with only 1% going towards climate related research. This is despite both the US government and agricultural lobby groups promoting technological progress as central to their plans for the sector to tackle climate change.
