Soil and Land Carbon Management

Soil and Land Carbon Management

Increasing carbon retention and storage in soils


Soil and land are natural carbon reservoirs. CO2 is naturally sequestered from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and stored in the form of soil organic carbon (SOC), which is also highly beneficial for the soil’s health and fertility.


Improving soil and land management could incentivise the retention of carbon as SOC. This approach doesn't require land use conversions (e.g., afforestation, reforestation), but rather implies converting more soils and lands into growing plantations.
