STRATEGIES FOR MITIGATING CLIMATE CHANGE IN AGRICULTURE :

Amy Dickie, Charlotte Streck, Stephanie Roe, Monika Zurek, Franziska Haupt and Alex Dolginow

Climate Focus and California Environmental Associates present their report published in April 2014 Strategies for Mitigating Climate Change in Agriculture: Recommendations for Philanthropy, commissioned by the Climate and Land Use Alliance.

According to the study, annual carbon emissions from global agriculture can be reduced by as much as 50 to 90 percent by 2030 - the equivalent of removing all the cars in the world. The study highlights twelve key strategies with more specific interventions for philanthropy—led by reduced global beef consumption, reduced food waste and better farm nutrient management and production—that can deliver big climate wins while maintaining food security and building resilience. It dispels the notion that productivity and sustainability can’t work hand in hand.
