Saving the climate from the ground up

Researchers suggest increased carbon inputs into the soil could slow down climate change and increase crop yields. They propose solutions including soil information systems with assessments of carbon-sequestration potentials, as well as incentives and policies to translate management options into region- and soil-specific practices.

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.

Old and new solutions pave way to net-zero emissions farming, studies show

Agriculture and food account for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions, making these sectors critical in efforts to address our current overshoot of the climate planetary boundary. They are also having profound impacts on freshwater, biodiversity and biogeochemical cycles. This article summarizes reports outlining how new and emerging technologies could pave the way to net-zero emissions agriculture in the next two decades, using robotics, electric vehicles, improved crop varieties and distributed monitoring. This precision agriculture could cut emissions by 71% and help build soil carbon stores. These interventions and more are detailed as nature-based and technological solutions that can help working lands mitigate and adapt to climate change.
