Topic: From Conventional to Regenerative Agriculture through Carbon Farming: Assessing Global Opportunities & Challenges Climate change and the increasing demands of a growing population are two of the biggest challenges facing humanity today. Agriculture - one of the most polluting industries in the world - accounts for one-quarter of global greenhouse emissions and is critical to both. This has put significant pressure on both Governments and farmers worldwide. Regenerative agriculture – in particular, carbon – is a promising solution to tackle these issues, providing sustainable agricultural methods that bring environmental and economic benefits. Third-generation farmer Mateusz Ciasnocha is CEO of European Carbon Farmers, which promotes carbon farming practices in Poland and developing agricultural carbon payment mechanisms. During this event he share how his family business is innovating in this sector and how can we kick start a Global Carbon Farming movement that works for farmers, society and our planet. Topics to be covered include: * What is regenerative agriculture? * How to transition from conventional and regenerative agriculture in a financially sustainable way from the farmer’s perspective * What is net zero is and what does it mean for farmers? * What are the advantages of carbon farming for the environment and how they reduce the carbon emissions? * What are the incentives for farmers? * What are the advantages of carbon farming from an economic perspective and how do agricultural carbon credit payments work?
