Mitigating climate change through agriculture
Comunidades rurales bajas en carbono: Aumentando la resiliencia y mitigando el cambio climático para el desarrollo rural: una experiencia en HondurasPDF
"Con el fin de alcanzar los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) de la Agenda 2030 y los Objetivos Estratégicos de la FAO (OE), se ha desarrollado el concepto innovador de agricultura baja en carbono, y se ha creado el concepto de Comunidades Rurales Bajas en Carbono, para promover la...
Low carbon rural communities: Enhancing resilience and mitigating climate change for rural development: one experience in HondurasPDF
The promotion of a low carbon development approach in rural communities includes providing access to renewable energy, aside of improving agricultural production practices through agroforestry and sustainable management of natural resources. These actions allow the quantification and...
Agriculture drives our societies and economies, but agricultural practices are also important factors in driving in-country GHG emissions. Climate-conscious agricultural policies represent a large opportunity for countries to reduce their emissions. The Agriculture Guidance supports the...
How can agrifood trade support climate change mitigation?PDF
This policy brief investigates the links between climate change and food security, examines the trade measures used to combat climate change in the agricultural context, and discusses the challenges ahead.
Achieving transformational change in land use and climate changePDF
This brief summarizes results from analyzing scientific articles across all fields of studies to answer three main questions: (i) What is the state of science in transformational change? (ii) What does ‘transformational change’ mean? (iii) What could drive transformational changes? It focuses...
Policy strategies and challenges for climate change mitigation in the Agriculture, Forestry and other Land Use (AFOLU) sectorWebsite
The Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector accounts for 23 percent of net global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and without strong policy action to lower these emissions, this share is likely to grow. Governments in a number of countries are taking steps to lower net AFOLU...
Enhancing climate change mitigation through agricultureWebsite
Agriculture, with its growing contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions and opportunities to mitigate emissions, can help close the gap between existing global mitigation efforts and those that are needed to keep global warming to between 1.5 °C and 2 °C by the end of the century. Global...
Revising Public Agricultural Support to Mitigate Climate ChangeWebsite
Agriculture generates roughly one-quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. By 2050, without major mitigation efforts, agricultural emissions are likely to reach levels that would make meeting global climate targets practically unachievable. Meanwhile, countries that produce two-thirds of the...
Climate change mitigation options in agrifood systemsPDF
The report provides key information on climate change mitigation strategies and effective pathways to achieve sustainable development in agrifood systems. Mitigation efforts are a critical enabler for achieving ambitious climate change mitigation goals and reducing greenhouse gas emissions globally.
Climate change mitigationPDF
This was the first in a series of technical webinars being organized by FAO’s Responsible Fruits project in response to the priorities and interests of participants from the private sector. The webinars will provide an opportunity for peer learning on precompetitive issues, and the identification...
