Crops and Carbon: Paying Farmers to Combat Climate Change | Routledge | Social Finance Matters (investing and business models for good) | Scoop.it

Rich countries are paying poor countries to fight climate change on their behalf - and one way they are doing it is through carbon sinks. These are reservoirs of organic carbon tied up in plants and in the earth, rather than being in the atmosphere as greenhouse gases. A new book by Mike Robbins  looks critically at this mode of climate change mitigation.

New Soil Carbon Methodology Approved - WorldBank | Social Finance Matters (investing and business models for good) | Scoop.it

A new methodology to encourage smallholder farmers in Kenya – and potentially worldwide -- to adopt improved farming techniques, boost productivity, increase their resilience to climate change, and earn carbon credits, has been given international approval.

The Verified Carbon Standard approved this first methodology on soil carbon, a new approach for sustainable agricultural land management (SALM) practices.
