NBS Good Practices from Chinese Government: Pilot Case of Carbon-Neutral Tea Production in China

China (2019)

The case study provides an effective scientific basis for public participation in low-carbon actions, guidelines for carbon-neutral tea as reference for other agricultural sectors' low-carbon actions, and promote the expansion of agricultural actions to cope with climate change. The development of carbon-neutral tea can promote social and economic development, facilitate the dissemination of carbon-neutral concept to mitigate climate change, promote institutional and technological innovation, eco-tourism and certification of carbon-neutral tea products, establishment of carbon-neutral tea demonstration gardens. Low-carbon tea production can achieve carbon sequestration of atmospheric CO2 and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the beginning of the tea industry value chain.
