Module 6: Carbon Farming, Sequestration and Markets

Soil carbon is an essential component of soil organic matter, which is critical for soil health and productivity. It helps to improve soil structure, water holding capacity, nutrient cycling, and microbial activity. Furthermore, soil carbon plays a significant role in climate change mitigation by acting as a carbon sink. When carbon is stored in the soil, it is not released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, where it can contribute to global warming and climate change. In this module, you will find resources that explore the concepts around carbon farming, sequestration and markets.
