Adoption of Sustainable Agricultural Land Management, v1.0


Adoption of Sustainable Agricultural Land Management, v1.0


The methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions of sustainable land management practice activities that enhance aboveground, belowground and soil-based carbon stocks of agricultural areas. The methodology applies input parameters to analytic, peer-reviewed models to estimate the organic soil carbon density at equilibrium in each of the identified management practices in each land use category. 

This methodology is applicable to projects that introduce sustainable management practices to an agricultural landscape where the soil organic carbon would have remained constant or decreased in time without the intervention of the project.

This methodology was open for public comment from 16 October 2009 until 15 November 2009. Public comments are closed.
