Agricultural carbon removals are achieved by farmers implementing regenerative practices.

Farming systems evolve under the influence of many factors, the most important of which are the local bioclimatic conditions. Because soil carbon stocks are built up through specific farming practices (for example by applying organic matter, managing crop residues, reducing tillage etc.), and their impact depends on the local soil and climate characteristics, it makes sense to develop a vision for carbon farming which is regionalised.

Fit-for-region carbon farming means to develop schemes and promote practices that are relevant for the regional context.

Toward the realization of this vision, the Credible consortium is creating a stakeholder-engagement and knowledge-sharing platform. Its main objective is to provide scheme developers with geographically arranged guidelines and support. The information will be organised around three thematic areas:

1

Which regional farming practices are relevant and what their potential impact could be (e.g. baseline assessment).

2

How to navigate standards and certification mechanisms.

3

Where to find local support and tips on how to create alliances.
