Rice is one of the most sensitive crops to climate variability over its growing season whilst having a huge environmental footprint. In fact, rice production accounts for 10% of global methane emissions. In this episode we delve into the potential of carbon credits and cutting-edge technology to drive the sustainability of rice production in Vietnam! Tuan Le from Rikolto in Vietnam and Vassily Carantino from Carbon Farm share their insights on the challenges and possibilities of a new business model.
