Work Programme on Agriculture: Priorities for Small Holders

16th May 2012
Parties and accredited observer organizations submitted their views to SBSTA on issues related to agriculture. The submission of Annex 1 countries are highly leveraged in favour of mitigation in agriculture. They promote bringing soils in carbon markets. As against this, developing country parties, least developed countries and farmers organizations categorically prioritize adaptation over mitigation in agriculture. They say mitigation in agriculture should begin from Annex 1 countries where per capita emission far exceeds emission from developing countries. Many question the utility of a work programme and mitigation focus in agriculture, and fear that it would be disastrous for small holder farmers and peasants who produce more than 70% of the world’s food. The side event discusses priorities for small holders, and what soil carbon markets has in store for small holder farmers.
