Abstract This report identifies options for activities within Land Use and Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) that would stimulate the sequestration of carbon in soils (removal of CO2) or reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and non ¿ CO2 greenhouse gases methane and nitrous oxide. This work is part of the preparation in the Netherlands towards completion and implementation of a National System for reporting of national greenhouse gas emissions from Land Use and Land Use Change and Forestry within the framework of the Climate Convention and the Kyoto Protocol to the UNFCCC secretariat in Bonn. Until now, the National Inventory Report for the Netherlands does not report all emissions or removals from land use and for agriculture only reports on CH4 and N2O. The experts¿ top ¿ 5 of the identified options relevant to land ¿ use, agriculture and forestry in the Netherlands include: land ¿ use changes from agriculture to forest and nature, management of crop residues, management of soil C in organic and peat soils, use of organic wastes and establishment and management of parcel edges. The overall potential is estimated by the experts at 3.7 Mton C per year or 13.7 Mton CO2 equivalents per year. Experts have expressed the importance of a set of definitions which includes system boundaries for option identified. This allows for accurate quantification and avoid double counting of effects. Such definitions are not available yet. The report finally identifies an action list.
