Low Carbon Farming (LCF) Initiative

Laya as a lead organisation of LCF in collaboration with Fair Climate Network, embarked on an initiative to integrate measurement of carbon saved in sustainable agriculture. In this context a model building exercise as part of a larger national framework was initiated, which involved developing a data base on emission reduction from sustainable farming practices. The baseline development process involves profiling of farmers families and discrete plotting of land holdings. Primary data for 2000 households in two districts has been developed.
