Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme
Putting climate-smart agriculture into practice
The MICCA Programme is working to build the knowledge base about what it will take to put climate-smart agriculture into practice.
Pilot projects: The Programme is partnering with other organizations to carry out pilot projects to provide quantifiable evidence that climate-smart agricultural practices can mitigate climate change, improve farmers’ lives and make local communities better able to adapt to climate change.
Global review: MICCA has carried out a global review of opportunities and obstacles at the farm level. The review examines the synergies between climate change and food security and measures the yield effect of sustainable land management practices that have the potential to mitigate climate change.
Mitigation projects database: The Programme has developed a database on mitigation activities currently ongoing within the category: agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU).
