AbstractReducing greenhouse gas emissions from Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses (AFOLU) offers a great opportunity for Africa to contribute to climate change mitigation and help millions of smallholder farmers adapt to climate change impacts. The Common Market for East and Southern Africa (COMESA), supported by the World Agroforestry Centre, is promoting a biocarbon approach for carbon management in African landscapes.
