Study focusing on organic agriculture and mitigation and adaptation to predictable and unpredictable impacts of climate change. The publication looks at the general contribution of agriculture to climate change and discusses the considerable potential of organic agriculture for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, and its contribution to sequestration of CO2 in the soil. It further outlines weaknesses of organic agriculture in the context of climate change and discusses the inclusion of organic agriculture in voluntary CO2 emissions markets. At the end the paper includes bibliography and a list of useful links (pp. 24-27). Eine Druckversion der Publikation ist erhältlich beim International Trade Centre UNCTAD/WTO, Palais des Nations, 1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland unter der Bezeichnung Doc. No. MDS-08-152.E
