Climate Change Mitigation

Climate Change Mitigation refers to efforts to reduce or prevent emission of greenhouse gases. Mitigation can mean using new technologies and renewable energies, making older equipment more energy efficient, enhancing natural carbon sequestration, or changing land management practices or consumer behavior. It can be as complex as a plan for a new city, or as simple as improvements to a cook stove design. Climate change mitigation acts to limit global warming and remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.  (Global N4C)
