FAO and Climate Change // Soils, Land and Water for climate change adaptation and mitigation

Through short text and infographics this booklet describes how soils constitute the largest store of terrestrial carbon. When managed using Sustainable Soil Management (SSM) techniques, soils can play an important role in climate change adaptation, and mitigation and can enhance the provision of ecosystems services by storing carbon (carbon sequestration) and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.
