In the agriculture sector, the dominant carbon mitigation options include restoration of cultivated organic soils, better management of cropland and grazing land and restoration of degraded lands. The mitigation potential of the sector is dominated by carbon sink enhancement of agricultural soils: the potential of carbon sequestration in soils is estimated to account for 90% of the total mitigation potential of agriculture sector and involves the following activities:
• Restoration of cultivated organic soils (1,260 Mt CO2)
• Improved cropland management (1,110 Mt CO2)
• Improved grazing land management (810 Mt CO2)
• Restoration of degraded lands (690 Mt CO2)
