Mitigating climate change through food and land use
Scherr, Sara J.; Sthapit, Sajal
Agriculture, forestry and changes in land use are largely responsible for human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. This report explains how capturing carbon in the land through agricultural and land use practices can reduce the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases and slow climate change. It also proposes ways to enable the full inclusion of farming and land use solutions in climate change policy.
