Agricultural emissions, represent around 14 % of the world’s GHG emissions IPCC 2007
THE CURRENT SITUATION
There is a need to expand agricultural use to satisfactorily supply
growing human population, but there are many challenges to face such as
the competition of land for urban growth, industrial development,
environmental reserves and other areas which are not readily accessible
or have poorer quality. The effects of climate change also imply
significant changes in water availability and possible shifts in
production zones (OECD-FAO).
Sustainable agricultural practices are vital to adapt to the
challenges we are faced with due to increased population and the effects
of climate change.
Global Gateways is here to develop and market a real solution based on sustainable agriculture practices through CO2
mitigation displacing synthetic fossil fuel based fertilizers and
capturing carbon in the soil with our own combination of fertilizer
products in the form of microbes, algae and biochar as described in the
The result for farmers will be increased quality and
increased productivity compared to traditional fertilizers with lower
costs and reducing the carbon food print of their process, likewise, GG
solutions will include converting large areas of unfertile land into
productive land improving forestation and rural development.
