Incentives for 'No-regret' mitigation

The project aims to develop an innovative approach based on highlighting co-benefits of mitigation options, integrating alternate wetting and drying (AWD) into a farming strategy, as opposed to approaches focusing on emissions reductions only.

This project will provide an innovative methodology for assessing and strengthening co-benefits of mitigation to address the problem of slow uptake of AWD and other mitigation options. The advantages will emphasize not only the water saving feature but also better crop performance that as yet has no empirical basis but is reported to have a wealth of anecdotal evidence.
