Details for Next Steps for Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture

Name:Next Steps for Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture
Description:Key messages
- Agriculture can contribute significantly to climate change mitigation, but more action is needed to identify appropriate implementation mechanisms, technical guidelines, policies and sources of finance to improve readiness and capacity building.
- Mitigation measures must provide direct benefits to farmers and contribute to national food security, economic development and trade to gain political support and investment.
- Pilot projects need to demonstrate different mitigation mechanisms and improve their technical and economic feasibility under diverse farm conditions.
- Simple, cost-efficient and regionally adapted methods are required for monitoring, reporting and verifying agricultural emissions.
- Carbon markets are unlikely to provide sufficient incentives for widespread adoption of mitigation practices in agriculture.
