Sustainable Agriculture Land Management Practices for Climate Change Mitigation: A training guide for smallholder farmers
The manual was created specifically for use in the Western Kenya Smallholder Agricultural Carbon project, managed by the Swedish NGO Vi Agroforestry, which is the test case for the first Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) methodology for generating carbon credits by building organic matter in agricultural soils. The project aims to provide support to farmers as they implement the sustainable agricultural and management (SALM) practices which generate the carbon credits within the project. This manual includes introductory modules on climate change and SALM, as well as modules that describe specific SALM practices, including soil nutrient management, tillage and residue management, agronomic practices, integrated pest management, agroforestry, soil and water management and improved livestock management.
