At the Barcelona Climate Change Talks The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) releases the Report on Food Security and Agricultural Mitigation in Developing Countries.
The report highlights the mitigation potential from agriculture of improvements in cropland and grazing land management and soil restoration. It explores potential synergies between food security, adaptation and climate change mitigation from land-based agricultural practices in developing countries.
It indicates that mitigation options need to require financing and implementation processes.
A final version of the paper will subsequently be prepared for distribution at UNFCCC COP 15 in Copenhagen
