This stakeholder workshop was held in November 2013 to address topics around carbon sequestration in agricultural soils and the potential for soil carbon to be included in whole-farm carbon accounting. 

The workshop aimed to identify what is known in this field. It drew on research  from Scotland and referenced work undertaken elsewhere.

The workshop was attended by representatives from the Scottish Government, Higher Education Institutions and Industry from the UK and Ireland, presenting insights into the current state and potential of soil carbon accounting in the context of climate policy.
