Thesis Topic/Title
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for Sustainable Development of Agriculture

Description

The environmental impacts and the sustainable development of agricultural activities have been identified as a significant issue. At present, the greenhouse gas emissions from the agriculture sector (excluding land-clearing) represents 16% of Australia’s total national emissions. There are growing pressures from the community to significantly improve the management practices and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and water uses from the farming sector. This project will use life cycle assessment (LCA) method to analyse and quantify the environmental impacts of agriculture, thus contributing to a more sustainable future.
