Government-led climate change mitigation
Reduce energy use
Install recharging stations for people to switch to electric cars
increase the use of renewable energy sources in electricity generation
Educating people on how to reduce energy consumption
using subsidies to encourage new technologies and support research into more efficient methods
awarding subsidies or tax credits to promote renewable sources of energy for industry and domestic users
subsidising public transport
incentive car pooling
Replace fossil fuels
Reduce emissions from transport
have vehicle emissions standards that must be met before new vehicles can be sold
planning regulations can promote alternatives to private car use, for example incorporation of cycle paths.
international agreement set goals ( Kyoto protocol and COP21) to reduce GHG emissions
Reduce agriculture emissions
Adding nitrification inhibitors to fertiliser to reduce nitrous oxide production
Using less fertiliser reduces nitrous oxide emissions
Reducing methane generation from livestock by:
selective breeding to have cattle that produce less methane
changing the feedstock.
Collecting and utilising methane emissions from biodegradation of animal waste as a source of energy.
Cultivating rice varieties that can be grown in drier conditions with higher yields to reduce methane emissions.
