Evaluation of the farms’ carbon footprint in the Itasy project
If small family farms adopt agroecology it could be a real solution to lower the agricultural carbon footprint. However, the workings of the agricultural systems are complex and there is a lack of reference when considering specific emission standards in Madagascar, therefore, it is difficult to measure specifically environmental advantages.
The project’s goal is to set up a method to evaluate the farms’ carbon footprint. It will identify the emission standards specific to the Region’s agricultural system.
Expected results:Measurement of the carbon footprint of the different farming models proposed in the Itasy project Budget :€24,000 over 2010-2012. Funding :Veolia Environnement. Project management :Agrisud. Partnerships :Veolia Environment, IRD - Institute of Research for Development, UMR Eco&Sol, LRI – Laboratory of Radioisotopes from Antananarivo’s University, GoodPlanet – and Etc Terra.
