Secretary Ross welcomes Western Cape delegation to California

CDFA Secretary Karen Ross (center in photo) today welcomed a delegation from the Western Cape of South Africa as it begins a week-long visit to California. The meeting included a discussion of a memorandum of understanding between the Western Cape and CDFA signed in March of last year.

The MOU focuses on expanding exchanges of information about on-farm practices and technologies to support a robust and climate-resilient agriculture sector, and a pledge to work collaboratively to further international engagement by sub-national governments on climate-smart agriculture initiatives.

The delegation has meetings scheduled this week with various government agencies, legislative representatives, and academic partners.
