1044: Farming, community food and climate change

This paper is taken from ‘Local food and climate change’, a report produced by Making Local Food Work

Year of Publication2010

Community food enterprises can help to reduce emissions by providing custom for farmers who are taking steps to reduce their emissions. Soil emissions and soil storage are poorly understood. Seeking to reduce emissions from one farm input could increase emissions from others. The high impact of internationally sourced farm inputs mean that localising farm inputs is potentially important. The paper contains short case studies which illustrate how some of these ideas might develop.
