As the global average temperatures rise and the Earth's climate is changing, the need to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) is becoming increasingly important. To achieve this, there is a need to develop innovative approaches to mitigate the effects of GHG emissions. One potential approach is the adoption of the adopt-a-highway model, which involves citizens in the process of reducing emissions through their participation in the maintenance of highways. This approach could be a viable solution for reducing GHG emissions, as it creates an incentive for citizens to reduce their emissions and puts them in a position to make a meaningful contribution to sustainability. This paper evaluates the potential for the adopt-a-highway model to reduce GHG emissions in the future, and explores the challenges that must be overcome in order to ensure its success. Through a review of the literature, it is concluded that the adopt-a-highway model is a viable and sustainable approach for reducing GHG emissions, and that its implementation should be further explored. In this study, the adopt-a-highway model's potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is discussed. The model can be used to reduce emissions and has been used to reduce the amount of solid garbage on highways. The paper provides a thorough review of the process, covering the many stages of implementation, and discusses the benefits and drawbacks of this paradigm. Additionally, it looks at how effective this approach might be at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and offers some potential safeguards against its failure. The report concludes by outlining potential next measures that could be taken to guarantee that the model is adopted further and that it is successfully used to reduce emissions.
