CDFA was welcomed today to the Integrated Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program Technical Advisory Council. The council is a centralized source of information and resources to assist decision makers at the state, regional, and local levels as they work together to adapt to climate change. Deputy Secretary for Climate and Working Lands Virginia Jameson is representing CDFA on the council.
Jameson’s addition underscores CDFA’s continuing efforts to address resiliency and adaptation to climate change through approaches such as the State Water Efficiency Enhancement Program (SWEEP), the Healthy Soils Program, the newly-launched Pollinator Habitat Program, the Conservation Agriculture Planning Grants Program, and technical assistance programs.
“I’m excited to participate in the Integrated Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program Technical Advisory Council,” Jameson said. “It’s important for CDFA not only to share the many efforts underway to improve resiliency in agriculture, but also to learn from other state agencies and come together to coordinate our plans, so we have a robust climate change response.”
