Climate smart ag collaboration between California and the Netherlands

California and the Netherlands continue their longstanding partnership on Climate Smart Agriculture, first established in 2015 with a visit by CDFA Secretary Karen Ross to the Netherlands. The two governments share opportunities for innovation within the food sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, enhance a circular agricultural economy, and further on-farm practices for sustainability.

The Netherlands-California Sustainable Dairy Summit this week in Sacramento connected government, business and academia around policy and research priorities related to dairy farming and a sustainable dairy sector. CDFA’s Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation (OEFI) was one of the key presenters at the event, sharing information about manure management programs at the agency.
