Abstract The aim of this study was to describe the challenges faced by the Dutch dairy sector in terms of climate change mitigation and adaptation, and to show possible pathways for implementation of mitigation and adaptation options towards 2030 and 2050. With regard to mitigation, the dairy sector has to comply with targets for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in sectoral, national and European legislation. With regard to adaptation, dairy farms are expected to benefit from increasing temperatures and CO2 concentrations, but this may be counteracted by increases in extreme weather events and animal and plant diseases and plagues. A roadmap is shown with phased implementation of mitigation- and adaptation options, based on their effectiveness, costs, readiness for practical implementation, and interaction with other aspects of sustainability.
