The growing need to feed and sustain the rising world’s population continues to remain a threat to climate. Agriculture accounts for over 24 percent of the Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) and yet less are the strides taken to curb the rising emissions. This paper seeks to explore the knowns and unknowns about low carbon agricultural development in the global south. It employs a desk study and use of secondary data to discover what low carbon studies have been conducted using the value chain approach in agricultural production chains.
It extrapolates a broader definition of the value chain inclusive of the chain functions, chain governance, chain environment and chain service provision. The paper concludes with a myriad of low carbon and transition knowledge gaps that require attention for the scientific and practice communities in the global south.
