Tropical agriculture

Year: 2009 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
There is great potential to restore carbon in tropical agricultural soils through management practices that, in the right circumstances, can also increase productivity. Agroforestry can offer particularly large carbon gains, although it can increase water demand. Agricultural carbon sequestration policies will need to be tailored to particular circumstances to allow farmers to benefit.
