Climate Change Challenge – an invitation to the Edmund Rehwinkel Foundation symposium

20 May 2019

Rentenbank’s Edmund Rehwinkel Foundation seeks attendees for its next symposium in Berlin on June 5, 2019. Academic studies supported by the foundation on the highly topical subject of ‘Climate Change Challenge – impacts on agriculture and adaptation strategies’ are to be presented.

The research provides an analysis of the introduction of market-based tools (price setting) to reduce GHG emissions from agribusiness, potential for improving the climate efficiency in pig farming and impacts of climate change on the irrigation requirements for outdoor-grown vegetables. The authors provide a raft of recommendations for action with their results for dealing with climate change. At the same time, they are looking at the possible contribution made by agriculture to the Federal Government’s climate protection policy.

The attendees can look forward to an exciting morning with the presentation of the research, which also offers a panel discussion with high-caliber experts. There is no charge for attending the conference. If you are interested in attending then please register here: You can access the conference programme there.


Rentenbank’s Edmund Rehwinkel Foundation was created in 1974 in memory of the former president of The German Farmers’ Association and long-time chairman of Rentenbank’ s Supervisory Board. The purpose of the foundation is to support science and research related to agriculture. Once a year, the foundation invites tenders which relate to its current topic of focus. Candidates can apply for funding by sending in a project proposal. In addition, the foundation provides grants to students studying for their master’s degree at a German university if they are focusing on agriculture or food sciences. More information at
