Global Soil Partnership

Recarbonizing soils

Recarbonizing soils (RECSOIL) is a mechanism for scaling up sustainable soil management (SSM) with a focus on soil organic carbon (SOC). The mechanism supports the provision of incentives for farmers who agree to implement good practices. 

Decarbonize the economy by recarbonizing our global agricultural soils

Recarbonization soils (RECSOIL) is a mechanism to scale-up sustainable soil management with a focus on soil organic carbon sequestration and maintenance. It backs national and regional farming incentives that restore degraded soils while preventing the release of greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere and contributing to carbon sequestration efforts.  

The priorities of the programme are to:

  1. prevent future SOC losses and increase SOC stocks;
  2. improve farmers' incomes; and
  3. contribute to food security. RECSOIL focuses on agricultural and degraded soils. 

One of RECSOIL's financing mechanisms is voluntary carbon credits, supported by other components.
