Among the diffuse sectors, the Spanish agrarian sector is the second largest greenhouse-gas emitting.
But it can also act as carbon sink.
We work on the identification and assessment of those mitigation and adaptation to climate change measures in the farming sector that allow generating environmental, social and economic benefits.
On the one hand, the farming sector is a source of GHG emissions but on the other, it can play a key role in mitigating climate change. Furthermore, it will suffer negative impacts of climate change.
A low carbon farming activity can represent an opportunity to improve competitiveness, reduce costs and anticipate legal changes. It also improves food security and can contribute to preserving the environment. Increasing carbon sequestration in soils through management improvement or through organic matter incorporation programs improve sequestration capacity and adaptation to climate change.
