Economic Incentives Help Puerto Rican Farmers Reduce Pollution

Project Title: Puerto Rico Coastal Protection and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation

Puerto Rico depends on agriculture for food security and the health of its rural economies. But farming activities are also a major source of nitrous oxide emissions and water pollution caused by agricultural run-off. This program creates a pathway for farmers to participate in environmental markets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve water quality.
