Making agriculture part of the solution to climate change – Building capacities for Agriculture Mitigation
The “Making agriculture part of the solution to climate change – Building capacities for Agriculture Mitigation" called MICCA (Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture) is a five-year multi-donor trust fund project that started in early 2010.
The main goal of this project is to support efforts to mitigate climate change through agriculture in developing countries and move towards carbon friendly agricultural practices. The project will assist countries to develop and choose policy, financial and technical options as well as effectively participate, contribute, report and benefit from international processes and incentives for agriculture mitigation.
FAO’s Animal Production and Health Division (AGA) will contribute to the following three key project activities:
Development of emissions data base and life cycle analysis (LCA)
Development of a database on mitigation potentials and costs
Global economic analysis of mitigation policy options
