The land use sector is the second largest source of emission in South East Asia and also presents unique opportunities for reducing the magnitude of climate change. The loss of carbon stocks through agricultural land-use change is a key driver of greenhouse gas emissions and the methods used to manage agricultural land will have major impacts on the global climate in the 21st century. The agriculture and forestry sector can mitigate climate impacts on land, and secure livelihoods in rural areas in the process.
