Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture

April 28th, 2010

The Platform for Agrobiodiversity Research encourages you to participant in a survey designed by the FAO MICCA project (Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture). MICCA aims to support efforts to mitigate climate change through agriculture in developing countries and move towards carbon friendly agricultural practices.  Hence, we hope to capture and contribute information about projects dealing with agrobiodiversity, which along with mitigation, have an adaptation component and rely on farmer and indigenous knowledge.

In this survey MICCA wants to identify existing agricultural projects, which have a mitigation component, ie that either reduce, avoid or absorb/sequester greenhouse gases through agricultural practices. They are interested in projects that have a clear carbon offset objective and are designed as a project for the carbon market. However, if your project is (still) not targeted to enter the carbon market, but entails activities, which mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, we would also like to encourage you to fill out the survey.

If you have any questions,  please send an email to micca [at] Together with MICCA we very much appreciate the time and effort you take to fill in this questionnaire. We hope that you will see this as an opportunity to promote smallholder mitigation strategies and prevent experience and knowledge from being lost. Thank you very much for participating in the FAO MICCA survey to identify ongoing agricultural mitigation projects.
