The agricultural development project ACCESO

reduced greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and

led to net carbon sequestration due to perennial

crop expansion.

? Increased fertilizer use was a moderate source

of emissions that was more than offset by

reduced emissions from other ACCESOsupported

practices, including improvements in

soil, water, and fertilizer management, and in

feed and grassland use by dairy cows.

? Compared to conventional practices, ACCESOsupported

activities reduced emission intensity

(GHG emissions per kilogram of output) for

carrots (-106%), cabbages (-99%), maize

(-99%), and potatoes (-98%) compared to

conventional production methods. Emission

intensity increased due to greater fertilizer use

for plantain (55%) and coffee (247%).
