Carbon sequestration in dryland soils



Auteur(s) : Land and Water Development Division of FAO, University of Essex and Lund University

Publisher : FAO
Date de parution : 2004


This report aims to review and summarize the current state of the art in Carbon Sequestration (CS) in order to analyse how available resources and specific programmes can be implemented in drylands, one of the most soil-degraded regions of the world. Other FAO publications produced under this programme have considered other aspects of CS : methodological issues related to carbon monitoring and accounting, CS options to address land degradation under the CDM, general aspects of CS, and specific CS projects.

With this analysis, the document aims to highlight the current problems and uncertainties and to produce recommendations for the development of specific strategies and policies that can be implemented in dryland areas to improve land management that enhances CS.
