Building on FAO policy advice and incorporating lessons from ongoing agricultural carbon finance projectsÃ‚Â of FAO and other organizations, this document aims to provide an overview of potential mitigation financeÃ‚Â opportunities for soil carbon sequestration. The first part provides an overview of the opportunities forÃ‚Â climate change mitigation from agricultural soil carbon sequestration, the emerging policy options andÃ‚Â consequent institutional mechanisms for financing such mitigation, and the opportunities for smallholders to participate in them. The second part is aimed primarily at carbon project developers and decisionÃ‚Â makers at national level concerned with environmental and agriculture policies and incentives, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and farmers’ associations working towards rural development andÃ‚Â poverty alleviation. It provides step-by-step practical support to project development.
