Eugene Mohareb was recently quoted in a number of media outlets (including CNN and The Independent) based on his research on low carbon food systems. The recent IPCC report on land use and climate change focused on the role of land use change including the preservation and restoration of carbon sinks in favour of grazing land or feed crops for livestock.
Eugene commented on the potential knock on benefits of reducing global consumption of animal products, including the possibility for reducing food waste, as well as findings from his research on the food system about measures that urban dwellers can take to reduce the food system’s effect on the climate.
Eugene Mohareb is a lecturer in Sustainable Urban Systems within the School of the Built Environment at the University of Reading. He is part of the Energy and Environmental Engineering research group. Eugene’s research examines urban approaches to greenhouse gas mitigation, focusing on food systems, domestic retrofit, and waste management.”
