Erasing our Carbon Footprint
Climate change through human action is undeniable and individuals as well as institutions have a moral obligation to contribute to mitigating it. For this reason, the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) has chosen to take responsibility for its carbon emissions and work towards becoming a carbon-neutral Centre.
