FAO Updates Database of Agriculture, Forestry and Land Mitigation Projects

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) has produced an updated assessment of the current status of land-based sectors in carbon markets through its Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture Project (MICCA). The report, titled “Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use Mitigation Project Database,” presents analyses of project methodologies and sizes, as well as regional differences in project types and scheme development.

The report presents the second analysis of the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use Mitigation Project (AFOLU MP) database. It presents trends since 2010, describing the range of new projects across all continents, but noting that Europe has not experienced new projects. It indicates that the regional distribution of AFOLU projects remains similar, with the order from high to low being Latin America, North America, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Europe and Central Asia.
