Land protection and restoration projects can yield a host of climate impact adaptation as well as mitigation benefits. TNC’s “Natural Climate Solutions” guidance acknowledges that large-scale political and economic issues must be addressed to reduce deforestation rates that exceed more than 7 million hectares each year worldwide. While expansive cattle ranching in the Amazon or palm oil production in Indonesia require comprehensive international solutions, much can also be done at a local level to avoid emissions through protection and support sequestration projects aimed to capture more carbon dioxide in the ground through restoration projects.
Land management initiatives are honing in on high-value emission reduction gains in some of the most bio-productive systems. You can learn more about natural climate solutions being implemented in forests, terrestrial and coastal wetlands, as well as agricultural lands that can provide climate benefits such as avoided carbon emissions and enhanced sequestration.
