Introduction to the Soil carbon sequestration in the Nationally Determined Contributions webinar | 2020

  1. 1. Webinar, Wednesday 22 April 2020 Soil carbon sequestration in the Nationally Determined Contributions
  2. 2. How much mitigation is required in agriculture globally to meet climate policy targets? Wollenberg et al. 2016
  3. 3. Global sources of carbon sinks - AFOLU Afforestation/ reforestation 29% Agroforestry 1% Wetland restoration 12%Forest mgmt 22% Soil carbon 18% Biochar 18% Chart Title A/R Agroforestry Wetland restoration Forest mgmt Soil C Biochar 9.9 – 26 GTCO2e
  4. 4. 119 countries included agriculture in NDC mitigation targets Sectorally (104) or as part of economy-wide target (15) Richards 2018 https://cgspace.cgiar.org/handle/105 68/73255 NDCs should seek • Highest possible ambition (Article 4.3) and show progress beyond previous NDC (Article 4.3) • Economy-wide emissions targets or progress toward such (Article 4.4)
  5. 5. NDC requirement: CTU principle Article 4.8 requires Parties to provide the information necessary for clarity, transparency and understanding of the NDC Primary function is to help understand the NDC mitigation target under Article 4, but also tracking and accounting for progress.
  6. 6. Our question Given the importance of soil carbon for climate targets… How are countries specifying soil carbon targets, policies and measures in their NDCs? • What are the challenges? • What more can be done? • A collaboration of CGIAR-CCAFS, 4p1000, German Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture (BLE) and Breakthrough Solutions
