Climate-smart practices in agriculture: The way forward
This is a blog on effective climate-smart agricultural practices that promote sustainability in agriculture by mitigating and adapting to climate change. These regenerative agricultural practices also enhance production and farmer incomes.
Carbon inequality disproportionately burdens developing and under-developed regions. It further marginalizes low-income communities and deteriorates the climate. To address this issue, it is essential that countries show greater commitment and dedication to reducing carbon emissions including transitioning to renewable energy, implementing sustainable development practices, and providing support to vulnerable communities.
