Welcome to the Collaborative Platform of the International "4 per 1000" Initiative.
The place where over 450 countries and organizations from all over the world meet, share and collaborate.
Official website: www.4p1000.org
The international Initiative "4 per 1000", launched by France on 1 December 2015 at the COP 21, consists of federating all voluntary stakeholders of the public and private sectors (national governments, local and regional governments, companies, trade organizations, NGOs, research facilities, etc.) under the framework of the Lima-Paris Action Plan (LPAP).
The aim of the initiative is to demonstrate that agriculture, and in particular agricultural soils can play a crucial role where food security and climate change are concerned.
Supported by solid scientific documentation, the "4 per 1000" Initiative invites all partners to state or implement some practical actions on soil carbon storage and the type of practices to achieve this (e.g. agroecology, agroforestry, conservation agriculture, landscape management, etc.).
The ambition of the "4 per 1000" International Initiative is to encourage stakeholders to transition towards a productive, highly resilient agriculture, based on the appropriate management of lands and soils, creating jobs and incomes hence ensuring sustainable development. The Executive Secretariat of the "4 per 1000" Initiative is hosted by the CGIAR System Organization, an international organization based in Montpellier.
