4p1000 initiative is currently rallying effort to sustainably manage soil for carbon sequestration.
The 4p1000 secretariat is now hosted by the CGIAR System Organization. The initiative provides a multi-stakeholder platform to facilitate partnerships, bringing together more than 250 contributors in both the public and private sectors under the framework of the Lima-Paris Action Agenda (LPAA) of the UNFCCC. The initiative will promote research-based solutions along four pillars:
- a multi-stakeholder platform to facilitate partnerships
- a tool to assess projects based on a set of references and indicators
- an international research program exploring the potential of soil carbon sequestration, innovative soil practices, the required enabling environment, and the monitoring, reporting and verification of solutions
- a digital resources center on carbon in soils
