FOREWORD
INTRODUCTION
INTEREST ON AGRICULTURAL SOIL CARBON BOTH AT GLOBAL AND EU SCALES
STRATEGIC RESEARCH AGENDA ON SOIL ORGANIC CARBON
Stakeholder approach
Research Challenges
Research Priorities
Pillar 1 – Frontiers research: unlocking the potential of soil carbon
Pillar 2 – Soil carbon monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system
Pillar 3 – Agro-ecological and technological innovations
Pillar 4 – Enabling environment and knowledge co-creation
Designing an International Research Consortium (IRC) on agricultural soil carbon sequestration
CONCLUSION
Appendix: Design of a global high-resolution dynamic soil organic carbon monitoring system for agricultural land
1. Basic monitoring, reporting and verification (M, R, V) concepts
2. Dynamic soil carbon and GHG balance modeling
3. Regional, national and project scale SOC monitoring systems
4. Design principles for a high resolution EU and global dynamic SOC monitoring system
5. Reporting and verifying SOC change estimates
6. First assumptions for the three pillars in the EU
