Abstract: In EU-15, GHG emission from agriculture decreased from 14% of the total GHG emission in 1990 to 10% in 2002. A smaller decrease has been observed for the NMS from 11% in 1990 to 9% in 2002. However, the trajectory that the contribution of agricultural emission took in the New Member States was much more instable, dropping to 7% in 1996 and oscillating between 10% and 9% since 1998. Decreases in fertilizer consumption were drastic around the year 1990 and decreases in cattle population slowed down in the second half of the 1990s (EEA, 2004). The per capita GHG emissions from the agricultural sector in 2002 are substantially lower for the NMS than for EU-15 countries, 0.7 vs. 1.3 t CO2-equivalent per inhabitant.
