California-sponsored climate adaptation policy adopted by national association of state Ag departments

Today, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) passed a new climate resiliency policy supporting voluntary, incentive-based climate smart agricultural programs on a national scale.

This amendment, sponsored by California and colleagues in Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington, will enable NASDA to engage at a federal level on priorities, programs and legislation that support the ongoing work of farmers and ranchers in using on-farm practices to reduce emissions, sequester carbon, and improve resiliency.

“Recognizing and supporting the voluntary actions of the nation’s farmers and ranchers to protect and enhance land, water and other natural resources is critical as we continue to address a changing climate,” said CDFA Secretary Karen Ross. “California is pleased to join and support NASDA in taking action at the federal level on Climate Smart Agriculture programs.”
