Forest management techniques for mitigation (REDD+) © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Several forest mitigation options exist: afforestation/reforestation, Deforestation and forest degradation, forest management for carbon stocks and wood products. The IPCC notes that...

Grazing land management © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Agricultural ecosystems hold large carbon reserves (IPCC, 2001a), mostly in soil organic matter.Historically, these systems have lost more than 50 Pg Carbon, but some of this ...

Household biogas digesters © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Biogas is a flammable gas produced by organic materials after it has been decomposed and fermented by anaerobic bacteria in tightly sealed environmental digesters under certain temperature,...

Irrigation © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

CO2 emissions can be reduced with effective irrigation by increasing yields and crop residues which can enhance carbon sequestration. (Smith et. al., 2008).

Land management: Restoration of degraded lands © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Land management options for mitigation fall in the following four categories: a) cropland management; b) grazing land management/pasture improvement; c) management of agricultural lands and d...

Livestock management © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Livestock are important sources of methane. The United States Environmental Protection Agency calculated that livestock, especially ruminants such as cattle and sheep, account for...

Livestock management: feed optimisation © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

The principle of nutrition regulation technology to reduce methane emissions is: to optimise the concentrate to forage ratio in diet by controlling the crude fiber content of the diet or the...

Livestock management: genetically modified rumen bacteria © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

To optimise the synthetic or metabolic pathway of micro-organisms related to methane synthesis by employing modern molecular biotechnology to obtain genetically modified microorganisms. Then the...

Livestock management: straw ammoniation and silage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Straw ammoniation is a process by which low-value forage such as corn stalks, rice straw, wheat straw, and straw of other crops is ammoniated. Adding liquid ammonia, urea, or ammonium bicarbonate...
