Strategies for Mitigating Climate Change in Agriculture

This report describes the main sources of agricultural emissions, reviews greenhouse gas mitigation opportunities in the agricultural sector, and presents guiding recommendations for philanthropic donors.

Strategies for Mitigating Climate Change in Agriculture: Recommendations for Philanthropy, is a report co-authored by Climate Focus and California Environmental Associates and commissioned by the Climate and Land Use Alliance. The report 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. The findings of the report dispel the notion that productivity and sustainability cannot work hand in hand.
