The wide-ranging impacts of climate change are adversely affecting millions of smallholder farmers around the globe, with farmers in Africa suffering the worst of these impacts. Rise in temperatures and extreme weather events, combined with a sharp increase in pests and diseases, are putting the very livelihoods of these farmers at risk.
Much more investment will be needed to provide farmers with the skills and finance they need to adapt to the changing climate. The Egyptian Biodynamic Association developed the ‘Economy of Love (EoL) standard and carbon scheme’ to help actively contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation. This standard uses an internationally recognized UNFCCC model to measure how much CO2 is emitted on EoL-certified farms and how much carbon is sequestered.
To date, the EoL carbon scheme has helped motivate 2100 farmers in Egypt to plant more trees, increase compost production, improve soil fertility through regenerative agriculture, and promote the introduction of renewable energy on small-scale farms.
