Agriculture and climate change: Direct and indirect mitigation through tree and soil management

Brent M. Swallow, Meine van Noordwijk
2020 vision focus brief

Many opportunities exist for mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through better management of trees and soils. There is potential for both direct mitigation through better management of carbon in agricultural landscapes and indirect mitigation through reduced pressure on carbon stored in forests, peatlands, and wetlands. Effectively harnessing these opportunities will take bold action in climate change negotiations.
