Dr Katharine Vincent has had a book review published in the peer-reviewed journal Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change.  The review is of Mike Robbins’ book “Crops and Carbon: Paying Farmers to Combat Climate Change.” The book examines options for carbon sequestration through the land (particularly the soil), as a complement to forests.  It is written in an accessible style and assumes no prior knowledge of either climate change or agricultural systems.  Robbins concludes that, despite significant uncertainties, payment for ecosystem services under REDD+ and the carbon market may indeed offer the opportunity to pay farmers to combat climate change, whilst simultaneously contributing to sustainable land management.
