UK - A project that highlights the economic opportunities, as well as the environmental threats, from climate change is being launched for farmers.

Farming is responsible for 7% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions and needs to be part of the effort to tackle climate change, the organisers say.

A website will offer farmers advice on what measures they can take, such as generating green energy from waste.

The project will be launched at the Oxford Farming Conference on Wednesday.

The scheme, which will run for 12 months initially, is a collaboration between environment charity Forum for the Future, the National Farmers' Union (NFU), the Applied Research Forum (ARF) and the Country Land and Business Association (CLA).
