The AgLED Platform is an open-access resource to inform and inspire new strategies for agricultural development that limit and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
Understanding the intricacies of climate change mitigation in the agriculture sector can be tedious and it can be hard to find relevant information. Open access guidance to technical information and introductory materials are lacking, especially guidance relevant to developing nations. The AgLED Resource Platform aims to fill this gap.
In AgLED you can find everything in low-emissions agriculture development from basic explainers to technical references, synthesis of the current knowledge of climate change mitigation in agriculture, signpost to national planning that integrates mitigation in agriculture, finance, and climate policy and a guide to boost the capacity of students and policymakers in developing nations.
In what context is this tool useful?
AgLED is intended to be a guide to climate change mitigation in agriculture and food systems for those new and old in the field of low-emissions development (LED).
One of the biggest opportunities and challenges is in developing countries, where food security has yet to be met while also seeking to reduce emissions. Therefore, this site emphasizes developing country data and examples.
Targeted users of this site range from those completely unfamiliar with climate change mitigation in agriculture to those seeking to expand their knowledge in a particular subsector.
