INRA - Étude de faisabilité de « 4 pour 1000 » en France : préserver et augmenter les stocks de carbone dans le sol

À la demande de l’Ademe et du ministère de l’Agriculture et de l’Alimentation, l’Inra a conduit une étude sur le potentiel de stockage en carbone des sols français (hors outre-mer) et a dévoilé les résultats de celle-ci le 13 juin 2019. Ces travaux se réfèrent aux termes de l’initiative 4 pour 1000, lancée lors de la COP 21 à Paris en 2015 qui consiste à accroître la teneur en carbone organique des sols mondiaux d’au moins 4‰ par an. Ce niveau de stockage équivaut aux émissions actuelles de gaz à effet de serre dans l’atmosphère, mais ne doit pas laisser penser que la réduction des émissions soit devenue facultative. Elle reste même l’objectif principal.
