In this study a literature review will be done on ongoing work on the potential role of conservation agriculture to improve productivity and sustainability of production through soil C, a co-benefit will be carbon sequestration for climate mitigation. Secondly, an assessment of ongoing field work that is being done in South Africa, and key stakeholders will be asked their expert opinion of the role and potential of CA in different parts of South Africa for sustainable production and climate mitigation. This will be done during a workshop. The information from the literature review and the workshop will be combined into a research agenda to be presented in a report that will be guiding towards circular sustainable agricultural production while working on climate change mitigation through soil carbon sequestration. Specific attention will be given to lacking knowledge for upscaling conservation agricultural practices.
