Published on

This presentation, by Liesl Wiese, was given on the 26 of June 2019 as part of the SB50 side event Enhancing NDC Ambition Through Soil Organic Carbon Sequestration. Country representatives and experts discussed the potential of soil organic carbon sequestration as a climate change mitigation option and gaps between countries’ current and potential commitments.

USA - Role of agric in GHG inventory - Practice-based indicators
  7. 7. SOC in the NDCs… What we found so far SOC specified in NDC agricultural targets ~10 countries SOC specified in general NDC text ~4-5 countries Measures/ practices specified: Climate-smart agriculture (29) Agroforestry (22) Wetland/ peatland (9) Soil management (~31) Sources: Richards, 2019 Richards et al. 2016 Hönle et al. 2018 Revised NDCs
