Carbon farming: its value and potential
Co-host Session: Rabobank
Carbon farming holds the key to mitigating climate change while enhancing soil health and nutritional value, so that agriculture is sustainable and can feed future generations. Carbon farming can reduce GHG emission from agricultural land, sequester additional carbon, regenerate degraded soils, increase biodiversity and ensure food & nutrient security for a growing global population. Carbon also holds to potential to be a key additional income stream for farmers, if they are properly supported through the voluntary carbon market or their own supply chains in achieving their ecosystem services. Farmers can go from polluters or climate change victims who are seeing their revenues decline to leaders in the decarbonization space, with the right network, knowledge and support from all involved stakeholders.
