What is
carbon neutrality

Carbon neutrality occurs by cutting emissions through mitigation actions and the compensation of residual emissions by natural and/or artificial sinks. The implementation of agroforestry systems is considered a natural sink with an additional advantage beyond carbon sequestration and combating climate change: it can have a positive impact and increase income generation for small producers
