Agriculture Sector

The impacts of agriculture activities on the environment and the achievement of sustainable agriculture are one of the world's major concerns today.

While agricultural productivity has improved substantially, it has often led to environmental degradation, such as soil erosion, water depletion and pollution. Additionally, agriculture emits CO2 when farmers till their fields and expose organic matter in the soil to the air. The soil organic matter, mainly carbon, decomposes and is converted into atmospheric CO2.

Many agricultural practices can potentially mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the most prominent of which are improved cropland and grazing land management and restoration of degraded lands and cultivated organic soils. Water and rice management, land use change and agro forestry, livestock management and manure management can also contribute to mitigating climate change.

At MGM Innova, we advice our clients on possible impacts and adaptation option for agriculture. Our experience in this field includes:

  • Advising farmers on anaerobic digestion, a technology that turns waste into renewable energy.
  • Advising farmers on soil conservation practices as to use fertilizers more efficiently.
  • Advising farmers to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill.
