icaO environmental protection and agro-ecology are key environmental protection areas for many developing countries.
As countries build more sophisticated agroecological systems, however, they are also facing the challenge of managing CO2 levels in their communities.
icaOs environmental protection goals are based on two key pillars: to reduce CO2 and to increase yields.
But while developing countries have set goals for CO2 reduction, they have not set targets for agriculture production.
ICAO environmental targets and targets for farming production are both highly contentious, as both can potentially lead to environmental degradation.
In a recent report, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) highlighted several countries’ failures to achieve these goals.
The IFAAD has called on the governments of Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Russia, South Africa, and Venezuela to make clear which countries’ goals are best aligned with their environmental protection targets.
“It is important that the targets and goals for sustainable agriculture are clear,” the IFAAd wrote in its report.
ICED, an organization working to improve agriculture, is also concerned about how to measure agricultural yields.
It has identified six indicators for measuring agricultural productivity, including the use of chemical fertilizers, chemical irrigation systems, and agricultural water use.
According to the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IIISD), the indicator “meets all criteria” but needs to be adjusted to include crop productivity.
IIISP also said that while its indicators can help gauge agricultural production, it can also be problematic to compare them to the goals of environmental protection.
So how should countries set agricultural production goals?
ICAOs goal to reduce carbon emissions per person per year is the most ambitious one, according to the IIISD, with targets of a total reduction of 10% by 2020 and a maximum of 15% by 2050.
A number of countries have already set ambitious targets, including India, Brazil and Argentina.
For instance, the government of Peru has set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% from 1990 levels by 2030.
Also, a group of countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, including China, Russia and India, have agreed to increase their production of food to meet their global food needs by 2026.
Another indicator of sustainable production is crop yields.
The IIISDP said that by 2030, all countries should aim to achieve the highest yield, as this is the benchmark for sustainable production.
The IFA wants the goal to be reached by 2030 but expects countries to have reached it by 2030 if they adopt the IEA targets.
As of now, the global CO2 production is expected to rise to 8.9 trillion metric tons by 2030 from 6.9trillion metric tons in 2030.
The IEA said in a statement that it will continue to monitor progress toward reducing greenhouse gas production and emissions.
