Our goals for 2030

Reduce net
GHG emissions by
1.4 billion tons CO2e

Increase SRI uptake from 6.7
to 50 million hectares
in production

Improve farmers'
incomes by
$275 billion

The progress of SRI so far

Validated in over 60 countries
Benefited 20 million households
6.7 million hectares in production

Like renewables, SRI is modular, scalable, proven,
and economically attractive.

SRI enhances...

  • Climate resilience
  • Food security
  • Yields - often by 100% or more
  • Women's health, well-being, and status
  • Soil health and biodiversity
  • Nutritional quality
  • Farmers' incomes
  • Local and national economies


with reduced...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Methane emissions
  • Water usage
  • Gender inequality
  • Seed quantity
  • Chemical fertilisers, herbicides, and pesticides
  • Fossil fuel consumption

Project Drawdown recognises SRI as a leading solution for climate change.

By increasing adoption of SRI to reach 52 million hectares by 2050, Project Drawdown estimates a reduction of up
to 4.3 billion tons CO2e, increasing farmer incomes by $817 billion.

What if we can accelerate uptake and achieve Drawdown’s 2050 goal, by 2030?

Reaching this goal supports the objectives of the Global Methane Pledge and helps keep 1.5°C achievable.

The climate is changing, and so must we.

SRI is a proven practical way to make a difference now.
