    Objective

    Agricultural ecosystems hold large carbon reserves (IPCC, 2001a), mostly in soil organic matter.Historically, these systems have lost more than 50 Pg Carbon, but some of this carbon lost can be recovered through improved management, thereby withdrawing atmospheric CO2 (Paustian et al., 1998; Lal, 1999, 2004a).

    Objective

    This study examines how export coffee production has posed challenges to a traditional common property regime in western Honduras, and the ways that the indigenous Lenca people are adapting to the new opportunities presented by expanding market linkages. Despite the spread of coffee plantations into mature pine-oak forests, the community has retained common property woodlots and grazing areas, and created a protected watershed in a cloud forest. The research draws on fieldwork conducted over a 14 year period.

    “Tunisia proposes reducing its greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors (energy industrial processes agriculture, forestry and other land use waste) in order to lower its carbon intensity by 41 percent in 2030, relative to the base year 2010…Tunisia, which has already made significant strides towards mitigation in its baseline, is looking to reduce its carbon intensity unconditionally and through its own efforts by 13 percent compared to 2010, i.e. by around 1/3 of its INDC. To achieve the rest of its objective, i.e.
