Capitalizing on the carbon sequestration potential of agroforestry in Germany’s agricultural landscapes : realigning the climate change mitigation and landscape conservation agendas

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper calls for greater integration of scattered trees into agricultural landscapes, hypothesizing that agroforestry practices effectively store carbon and deliver other important ecosystem services. Several agroforests from the Upper Lusatia have been selected. Practices of conserving or promoting six agroforest classes are compared with a catalogue of essential properties for becoming effective "carbon offset projects". Criteria from mandatory and voluntary carbon markets for carbon sequestration are then applied. The study concludes that steps towards realization of ‘carbon sequestration projects’ should include collecting empirical evidence regarding the carbon sequestration potential of temperate agroforestry systems
