Finding Common Ground in Carbon

Project Description

Produce a report based on interviews with farmers, agribusiness professionals and environmentalists to identify the barriers in implementing an agriculture carbon market and what common ground exists for these important stakeholders in seeking solutions for change.

Project Goals

Through interviews with farmers, agribusiness and environmentalists, I am seeking to identify the challenges with current carbon credit programs to determine what common ground exists in seeking solutions for change by summarizing the findings in a report. The goal is to start the dialogue between these parties and illustrate common interests and use economic benefits of eco-responsibility as the carrot of compromise that leads to a better environment and a more stable agriculture economy.
