The paper presents a diagnosis of the situation of Polish agriculture and rural areas in terms of low\-carbon economy. Strengths and weaknesses as well as the opportunities and threats in the two key elements, i.e. maintenance or increase in the ability to absorb CO2 and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural lands and soils, were indicated. Specific attention was paid to the high potential of agriculture and rural areas \(including forestry\) in terms of the possible use of their resources in order to increase the sequestration of carbon in biomass and soil and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the use of agricultural and agro\-food processing with wood biomass for renewable energy development, including the production of biogas and biofuels. Moreover, the principles of operation of a low\-carbon economy and the main bearings of low\-carbon development of rural areas were determined. Also the need was stressed to include agriculture and rural areas into the local planning of low\-carbon economy and their recognition in low\-carbon economy plans which are being prepared by local government units. The proposed solutions are the result of the research and analyses carried out, as an author, during the work on a Pilot programme of low\-carbon development of Starogard county. It is the first of such documents dedicated to low\-carbon economy, drawn on a county scale in Poland."]
