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

1
Validated in over 60 countries
2
Benefited 20 million households
3
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

  • 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.
