How is the Land Trust Community Working to Mitigate Climate Change?

Land trusts are already mitigating climate change through carbon sequestration, leading efficiency innovations by example as well as flexible easement language, and making socially responsible investments. By raising awareness and calling for individual and community climate action, land trusts can play a critical role in guiding future land use planning in their region.

Mitigation

Climate change mitigation involves efforts to reduce or prevent emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. Mitigation activities may include increasing the use of renewable energy technology, making older equipment more energy efficient, or changing management practices or consumer behavior.

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation: Resiliency Planning

The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) works to restore and preserve natural resources within the watershed. Restoration projects combined with community education and outreach to improve land management practices have yielded measurable water quality improvements. By increasing protection of natural features such as marshes, barrier islands, and ridges, conservation efforts help protect surrounding communities – both ecological and socio-economic – from the impacts of increasingly stronger hurricanes and sea level rise.

Natural Solutions to Climate Change

At the United Nations climate change meeting that just concluded in Bonn, Germany, global leaders reaffirmed that the world cannot respond adequately to rising temperatures if governments continue to ignore how forests, farms, and coasts are managed. Now that there is a firm consensus, governments must take action.

Global Sequestration Potential of Increased Organic Carbon in Cropland Soils

Nature reports that the role of soil organic carbon in global carbon cycles is receiving increasing attention both as a potentially large and uncertain source of CO2 emissions in response to predicted global temperature rises, and as a natural sink for carbon able to reduce atmospheric CO2.

Trending: Idled farmland presents habitat restoration opportunities in San Joaquin Desert

A recent global trend toward retirement of farmland presents opportunities to reclaim habitat for threatened and endangered species. A new study highlights how more information on patterns of habitat loss, degradation, and use will allow targeted habitat restoration in areas where it will make the biggest impact for conserving sensitive and endangered species.
