Land Management Practices for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration: Proceedings of a Workshop—in Brief

Terrestrial carbon sequestration is a process that involves the capture of carbon dioxide from the air by plants, through photosynthesis, and the storage of that carbon in woody biomass and in plant-derived soil organic carbon. Although terrestrial carbon sequestration regularly occurs in nature, there are human actions that can help maintain and enhance the carbon sequestration capacity of land—and help mitigate the effects of climate change.

This new publication summarizes a webinar and workshop that addressed:

  • The current state of knowledge on the capacity of land management practices as a carbon dioxide removal (CDR) approach and the scientific and technical research requirements to achieve this capacity
  • The research needs for predicting—across multiple scales—the impact of land use change and management practices to the future of terrestrial carbon storage and CDR potential
  • The state of knowledge on policies and incentives, and socio-economic constraints on terrestrial carbon sequestration activities
