The Global Research Alliance (GRA) on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases was established in the margins of the Conference of Parties (COP15) in Copenhagen, Denmark on 16 December 2009. However, the idea was borne earlier in the year from discussions originating from New Zealand scientists and negotiators at other climate change conferences. With imperiled climate change negotiations of the United Nations Framework on Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) occurring earlier in the year and culminating in Copenhagen, an agreement was signed by government ministers of 21 countries to form the GRA and create a positive step forward for the agricultural sector, which previously was left without much voice in the UNFCCC negotiations. The 21 countries agreeing to participate in the GRA were Australia, Canada, Columbia, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, and Vietnam. The logo of the GRA is shown in Fig. 3.1.
