There are a wide range of agriculture-based practices and technologies that have the potential to increase food production and the adaptive capacity of the food production system, as well as reduce emissions or enhance carbon storage in agricultural soils and biomass. This paper provides a brief review of the adaptation and mitigation benefits from various practices, and then focuses in detail on empirical evidence concerning costs and barriers to adoption, both from household and project-level data.
