Climate change mitigation or carbon mitigation means lowering CO2 emission. A tension between meeting global food demands and lowering CO2 emissions amid demographic change and food price volatility creates significant challenges to the agriculture sector. Sustainable food production thus involves environmental objectives (Wilde, 2013), with climate adaptation becoming necessary if countries are to secure the future sustainability of food security. Food production emits CO2 through the processes such as burning (crop residues and savannah), crop residues/harvest waste, enteric fermentation, manure, rice cultivation, and crop residue decay, and from the deforestation required for new agricultural land (Lassa, Mau, Elcid, & Frans, 2014). Recognition of this reality draws attention to a need to better manage the shared goals of food security, risk management, climate adaptation and carbon mitigation.
