Biochar has been widely reported to improve soil fertility and crop yields while storing sequestered carbon in soils. Furthermore, biochar-producing ovens can be used for cooking at the household level, using biomass much more efficiently than traditional fire cooking stoves and ovens. Therefore, biochar has the potential to contribute to the restoration of degraded lands from two angles: by reducing pressure on woodlands as sources for fuel; and by improving soil fertility. This session will reflect these aspects through case studies and will present lessons learned from successful interventions and dealing with obstacles on the way to promoting biochar.
