How can we scale-up sustainable landscape management to reduce GHG emissions while ensuring food, water, and energy security?

At present, agriculture, livestock and deforestation are responsible for 20-30% of global emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) which contribute to global warming. Opportunities exist, however, for land uses to be capable of reducing or sequestering significant amounts of carbon from the atmosphere, as well as create more productive and resilient landscapes that increase food security, water availability and energy supply, and support growing incomes. This contest seeks proposals on sustainable best management practices that can be rapidly implemented and brought to scale in order to address the challenges of climate change.
