About Landscapes as Carbon Sinks

Increasing economic practices that mine soils and landscapes are causing land to be sources of emissions, not sinks.

Lack of land management is also raising wildfire risk that can create bursts of emissions, whereas opportunities for carbon sequestration are missed. Deep Demonstrations of turning landscapes from carbon sources to sinks will need to tackle a lack of investment, forge new social contracts with soil and forests, and line-up value-chain incentives. Current partners include Chalons-en-Champagne, a French landscape ecosystem, and the Government of Scotland.
