To date, the agricultural sector, as a net greenhouse gas producer, has largely been seen as part of the climate change problem. But farmers can become part of the climate change solution.

Whether it’s through livestock rearing or vegetable production,  the world’s agricultural producers are widely accepted as responsible for between 10 and 14 per cent of the world’s total Green House Gas production and thus a contributor to climate change. But with the right incentives, farmers can be encouraged to modify their farming practices and become part of the climate change solution.
