Resilience, Issue 39 – 2% Solutions for Hunger Thirst and CO2

September 2013

These 2% Solution profiles are part of Quivira’s Carbon Ranch Project, whose goal is to share land management strategies that sequester CO2 in soils and plants, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce co-benefits that build ecological and economic resilience in local landscapes. The 2% refers to: 1) the amount of new carbon in the soil needed to reap a wide variety of ecological and economic benefits, 2) the portion of the nation’s population who are farmers and ranchers and 3) the cost to the nation to get this work done. In other words: only 2%!
