Niggli, Urs; Schmid, Heinz and Fliessbach, Andreas (2008) Organic Farming and Climate Change. International Trade Centre (ITC), Geneva.
This publication concludes that organic agriculture has much to offer in both mitigation of climate change through its emphasis on closed nutrient cycles and is a particularly resilient and productive system for adaptation strategies. It also raises the issue of whether organic agriculture should be eligible for carbon credits under voluntary carbon offsetting markets and the Clean Development Mechanism.
