Land uses can also reverse the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by sequestering and storing carbon in biomass and soils. The dominant drivers of land use emissions of carbon are the conversion of forest and grassland to crop and pastureland and the depletion of soil carbon through agricultural and other land management practices. Practices such as livestock grazing, manure management, and fertilizer application also affect emissions of other GHGs such as methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O). USDA research will identify opportunities to apply resource conserving management practices to reverse past carbon losses and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Areas of focus under Goal 3 include: • Knowledge and technologies that will assist resource managers in enhancing carbon sequestration; • Management options that increase forest carbon sequestration by increasing the carbon stored in forests and soils, in forest products, and used as biofuels to replace fossil fuels. • Costs, benefits, and feasibility of mitigation options; • Technologies and strategies for managing agricultural and forestry emissions of GHGs, including CO2, N2O, and CH4; • Mechanisms to facilitate the adoption and incorporation of GHG management technologies into agricultural and forestry production, processing, storage and delivery systems; • Estimation and measurement capabilities for assessing the effectiveness of GHG emission management. Goal 4: Deliver climate change science and technology to USDA agencies, stakeholders and collaborators for improved decision making. USDA maintains research, education, and extension capabilities which can be drawn on to meet the challenges of climate change. USDA seeks comments on how to best utilize resources to address questions relevant to stakeholders and decision makers at local, regional, national, and international scales. Goal 4 emphasizes the delivery and application of the latest scientific information, including: • Education of USDA stakeholders, clients and customers including the general public, the scientific community, land managers, producers, and policy makers about climate change and agriculture and forestry; • Scientific collaboration and technology transfer to integrate climate change into decision-making for management of natural and managed VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:46 Aug 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 ecosystems using the products of research and development from the three previous goals; • Distribution and dissemination of USDA climate change data, information, and technology to interested users; • Decision support tools for policymakers, producers and land managers charged with implementing mechanisms for reducing GHG emissions and enhancing carbon sequestration, thereby increasing resilience of natural, agricultural, and forested ecosystems; • Risk management paradigms to balance production, conservation and climate change, especially in light of uncertainty regarding the specifics of future climate and climate variability; • Incorporation of GHG and carbon sequestration data into USDA data collection programs and data base systems.
