Agriculture can be part of the solutions to climate change mitigation, which aims to reduce greenhouse gases. Because it can be costly, low-carbon farming incentives need to outweigh the setup, maintenance, and other costs to make economic sense for small-scale farmers to support their multi-benefit actions.
Based on the importance of "On-Site Implementation" recognized through the discussion at NARO-FFTC International Symposium on Climate Change and Food System held in Tsukuba in October 2022, in this following annual workshop, we share experiences and approaches in developing and encouraging the adoption of technologies suitable for smallholder low-carbon farming and livestock systems to realize low-carbon agricultural and livestock systems in the Asian and Pacific region.
