Abstract

Agriculture is a significant contributor to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, primarily through methane and nitrous oxide emissions from livestock farming, rice cultivation, and fertilizer use. In the face of climate change, there is an urgent need to mitigate these emissions and build climate-resilient agricultural systems. This comprehensive review examines the sources and drivers of GHG emissions in agriculture, the potential impacts of climate change on agricultural productivity, and evolving agricultural practices aimed at reducing emissions and enhancing resilience. We explore a range of strategies, including improved nutrient management, precision agriculture, agroforestry, and the adoption of climate-smart agricultural practices, which offer opportunities to mitigate GHG emissions while simultaneously improving soil health, water conservation, and biodiversity. , we discuss the role of policy frameworks, financial incentives, and international collaborations in promoting sustainable agricultural practices and fostering climate resilience in the agricultural sector.

Keywords: Greenhouse gas emissions, climate resilience, agricultural practices, climate change
