LRRD is committed to promoting strategies that will reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and that will enhance biodiversity. Planting perennial and semi-perennial trees and crops that maximize capture of atmospheric carbon, is a major element in this strategy as it will be the means of removing carbon from the atmosphere during the transition period as countries commit to their pledges to be carbon neutral by 2050 (The Guardian Newspaper 2021). For these reasons LRRD gives priority to papers that: demonstrate strategies by which trees, shrubs and semi-perennial, high-biomass crops (eg: such as sugar cane, cassava and sweet potato) can be the basis of livestock production systems, in the tropics.
