Carbon sequestration in agricultural soils

This report by the World Bank presents state of the art knowledge on the impact of different land management practices on soil carbon sequestration rates across the world. The technical study undertakes a meta-analysis to calculate soil carbon sequestration rates in Africa, Asia and Latin America and uses ecosystem simulation modelling techniques to predict future carbon storage in cropland soils. The report provides a broad perspective to natural resource managers and other professionals involved in scaling up climate-smart agriculture (CSA).
