What initiatives, policies, and technologies can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from land use change and waste?

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), agriculture, livestock, forestry, and other land use are responsible for 24% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Waste management accounts for an important part of overall industry emissions which are estimated to be 21% of total GHG emissions.
 

Opportunities exist, however, for improved land use to reduce and/or sequester significant amounts of GHGs from the atmosphere, while creating more resilient landscapes that increase food security, water availability, energy supply, and human well-being and resilience. This contest seeks proposals on sustainable land and waste management practices that can be effectively implemented and brought to scale, in order to significantly address the challenges of climate change. What initiatives, policies, and technologies can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from land use change, including agriculture, livestock, forestry, and waste management? How can these be achieved while ensuring food, water, and energy security?
